Governance of Nuclear Warfare

States currently manage the risks of nuclear weapons through a range of measures that have prevented the worldwide spread of these weapons of mass destruction but have not significantly reduced the risk of catastrophic use. In fact, recent changes to nuclear doctrine and planned development of new nuclear weapons by the United States and Russia make it more likely that nuclear weapons will be used in military actions, or through miscalculation or accident, than at any time since the 1950s and the beginning of the Cold War.
