Authors: Sharon Squassoni and Amy F. Woolf 
Book Description:
Nonproliferation assistance programs are a relatively new tool in combating the
proliferation of weapons of mass destruction. The Cooperative Threat Reduction
(CTR) programs, funded by the Department of Defense (DOD), are the most visible
of these programs. Begun in 1991, CTR initially aimed to help Russia meet its
START obligations to reduce strategic nuclear weapons.1 Within a decade, however,
CTR took on the goal of reducing the threat of terrorist access to weapons of mass
destruction (WMD).2 Experts realized that Russia needed to protect its Cold War
overhang of WMD materials, scientists, and equipment from those who might exploit
insider opportunities and who had incentives (particularly financial) to sell WMD
technology to anyone. Now, however, many analysts support expanding cooperative
threat reduction programs beyond Russia to other geographic areas. The Bush
Administration itself stated in early 2003, that it had “expanded the strategic focus
of the CTR program” to support the war on terrorism.3
This book surveys options for applying CTR programs to states that pose a
WMD and terrorism threat.
