Matthew Bunn is a Professor of Practice at the Harvard Kennedy School, and faculty lead for the Project on Managing the Atom. His research interests include nuclear theft and terrorism; nuclear proliferation and measures to control it; the future of nuclear energy .

    George Bunn ( – Ap ) was an American diplomat, lawyer, and nonproliferation expert. He drafted the legislation that created the U.S. Arms Control and Disarmament Agency (ACDA), was one of the lead U.S. negotiators of the nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty (NPT), served as Dean of the law school at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, and spent the last two decades of his.   Arms controllers today can and should learn lessons from recent history: it is time to bring arms control into the future. Nuclear arms control was once immune to disagreements in other fields because Russian and American leaders understood that it was too important to risk a total breakdown.

On the one hand, while vertical proliferation implies greater numbers, qualitative enhancements, new military capabilities or an increased role of weapon systems, it can have some limited.
