Minimal Nuclear Deterrence¯A Stop Along the Path to Zero
Atlanta, Georgia (PRWEB) July 5, 2008
Bruce A. Roth, founder of Daisy Alliance and author of No Time To Kill, announces the 2009 Student Scholarship/Essay Contest, "Minimal Nuclear Deterrence¯A Stop Along the Path to Zero". The focus of this year's contest is the reconciliation of the requirements for minimum deterrence with the practical steps of deep nuclear arms reductions in the U.S. and Russia. Thematic issues include the effects of nuclear arms reduction on stability and the deterrence of threats, tradeoffs between reducing nuclear arsenals and maintaining strong nuclear capabilities, and the depth of reductions that can be made without materially affecting security or strategic stability.
The essay contest is open to undergraduate and graduate students, both U.S. and international, who are currently enrolled in a program with an international affairs focus.
Cash prizes are awarded to students with the best original papers. Prizes are $1000 for 1st place, $500 for 2nd place, $250 for 3rd place, and $100 for 4th place. Daisy Alliance will host an awards dinner following the completion of the contest.

ABOUT DAISY ALLIANCE--Daisy Alliance was founded by Bruce A. Roth in 2006 as a global grassroots organization which promotes the non-proliferation, disarmament and elimination of nuclear weapons, biological weapons, and chemical weapons--all types of Weapons of Mass Destruction, or WMDs. Daisy Alliance raises funds from the sale of its products: lapel pins and a book written by its founder, No Time To Kill, in order to educate the public in all walks of life about the threat that WMDs pose to civilization. No Time To Kill is a holistic guide to WMDs, terrorism, and genocide, written for the layperson. More than just discussing these problems, it presents a reasonable solution to make the planet safer--an approach never tried before. The Daisy Alliance lapel pin symbolizes the globe at its center and its petals represent people of the world. The inspiration for the name Daisy Alliance came from the 1964 Lyndon B. Johnson presidential television campaign ad.
