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.

You can contact the Young Deep Cuts Commission via E-mail: ydcc@deepcuts.org

I was quite pleased to be involved in this project, where I wrote on the implementation of the Russian Research Reactor Fuel Return programme in 🇵🇱, how the programme continued despite the downturn in 🇺🇸-🇷🇺 relations and lessons we can learn for today in this regard. twitter.com/VCDNP/status/1…
