The Young Deep Cuts Commission (YDCC) is a group of twelve young arms control experts from Germany, Russia, and the United States. The Young Deep Cuts Commissioners come from diverse academic and professional backgrounds and share a commitment to improving international peace and security through arms control and disarmament. The Young Deep Cuts Commission develops fresh ideas to strengthen and revitalize nuclear arms control and disarmament and promotes them through publications and outreach activities.

YDCC is part of the Deep Cuts project, an independent, nongovernmental initiative, which provides decision-makers as well as the interested public with concrete policy options based on realistic analysis. The Deep Cuts project is supported by the German Federal Foreign Office.

Panelist @JaworekPatricia notes that keeping civil society dialogue between adversaries alive & communication channels open in times when high-level political dialogue is at a standstill constitutes an important form of risk reduction. 27/
