Immerse yourself in the world of nuclear deterrence and learn how Germany can safeguard its security interests in a world increasingly characterised by nuclear weapons. The discussion will be moderated by retired Professor Dr Heinz-Günther Stobbe and accompanied by journalist Werner Sonne.

Nuclear deterrence, for a long time more of a theoretical thought experiment, has suddenly become very real as a result of Russia’s war against Ukraine. Germany must defend its own values and stand by Ukraine without risking a nuclear escalation by Russia.
At the same time, Germany is and will remain a non-nuclear state and is under the protective umbrella of the United States. How exactly does this protective shield work and what are the dilemmas of nuclear deterrence? How can Germany assert its security interests in a world dominated by nuclear weapons and contribute to NATO’s nuclear deterrence while minimising nuclear risks? Karl-Heinz Kamp addresses questions such as these in his comprehensive article on Germany’s nuclear future.
