The United States' role in extending a nuclear security guarantee to allied
nations in Europe has diminished since the Cold War, and several new nuclear
security threats have emerged-North Korea has nuclear weapons, Iran may have
them soon, and there are terrorist organizations who aspire to using weapons
of mass destruction against the US and its allies. Russia and the U.S. are
no longer on the brink of nuclear war, but tensions still exist from
disagreements over missile defense, NATO expansion, and the Russian invasion
of Georgia.

Students should address all of the following questions:


   - How has the deterrent usefulness of the U.S. nuclear umbrella changed
   since the end of the Cold War?
   - What effect, if any, has this had or is it likely to have on
   nonproliferation and disarmament efforts? How important are these efforts
   for the security of all NATO partners?
   - Is NATO still needed to provide a nuclear security guarantee to its
   non-nuclear members?
   - Should NATO decrease, or end its reliance on nuclear weapons?

This essay should be at least 2,500 words and not more than 3,000 words
excluding footnotes and bibliography. Papers must be submitted in a Word
file no later than January 26, 2010 to Daisy Alliance using the email link
on the "Contact Us" page of the Daisy Alliance website. Students should be
sure to include their name, mailing address, phone number, school name, and
grade.

For more information about the 2010 scholarship, Daisy Alliance, Bruce Roth,

Daisy Alliance is a nonpartisan grassroots peace organization seeking global
peace and security through nuclear nonproliferation, disarmament, and the
elimination of all Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD) - whether nuclear,
chemical, or biological. It raises funds in order to educate the public
about the devastation that WMDs are capable of inflicting and the threat
they pose to civilization.
