Roundtable discussion – Great Power Competition and Arms Control in a Post-INF World

Thursday the 28th of March, Stockholm Free World Forum arranged a roundtable discussion with Frank Rose, Senior Fellow at the Brookings Institution and former Assistant Secretary of State for Arms Control, and John Rydqvist, Deputy Research Director at the Swedish Defence Research Agency (FOI). The discussion was moderated by Dr. Oscar Jonsson, Acting Director of Stockholm Free World Forum.

In the roundtable discussion, Frank Rose spoke about the reasons for, and the implications of, the end of the INF Treaty, how the shifts in the geopolitical environment and the evolution of technology impact strategic stability and why a future strategic stability framework must incorporate China and emerging technologies. Furthermore, John Rydqvist discussed Sweden’s role in deterrence, the need for a Swedish debate on what the nuclear dimension means for overall deterrence and military planning.
