Rose Gottemoeller is the first female deputy secretary general of NATO and the first woman to lead a major nuclear arms negotiation. As the U.S. chief negotiator of the New START treaty, her new book is an invaluable insider’s account of the negotiations between the U.S. and Russian delegations in Geneva in 2009 and 2010 and the crucial discussions between President Barack Obama and President Dmitry Medvedev. At a time when the U.S. Congress stands deeply divided, Gottemoeller tells the story of how Republicans and Democrats came together to ratify a treaty to safeguard the future of all Americans.

On October 18, 2021 at 6:00PM ET, join Senior Fellows Tatiana Serafin and Nikolas Gvosdev, hosts of Carnegie Council's The Doorstep podcast, for a discussion on arms control, U.S.-Russian relations, and how the New START negotiations can serve as a blueprint to inform the shaping and ratification of future treaties.

Rose Gottemoeller is Steven C. Házy Lecturer at Stanford University's Freeman Spogli Institute for International Studies and its Center for International Security and Cooperation. She is the author of Negotiating the New START Treaty.
