Host: Hudson Institute. The Project on National Security Reform is pleased to invite you to a Roundtable on Interagency Reform discussing a case study on “U.S.-India Civil Nuclear Cooperation Agreement,” by Patrick Mendis, PhD, and Leah Green. The proposed U.S.-Indian civil nuclear cooperation accord represents a transformation in American nuclear nonproliferation policy. By examining the policy shift and the security implications of the proposal, this case study illustrates the challenges of adjusting long-standing policy guidelines to conform with new strategic frameworks. It also provides insight for future interactions in which broader strategic ties and policy goals transcend traditional security concerns. The key concern of the proposed U.S.-India nuclear deal—balancing nonproliferation goals with other foreign policy objectives—is one that will remain relevant with respect to India even if the nuclear agreement falls through.
