Staudenmeyer helped plan and served as Rappatour and wrote summaries of RANSAC Congressional Security Seminars on “U.S.-Russian Relations in the post-September 11 World,” “A Decade of Nunn-Lugar: U.S.-Former Soviet Union Threat Reduction and Nonproliferation Cooperation,” “Proliferation Dangers in Russia’s Nuclear, Chemical, and Biological Weapons Complexes,” and “A Briefing on the Dangers and Benefits of Russia’s International Nuclear Cooperation.” The summaries of these events were incorporated into the final study entitled Reshaping U.S.- Russian Threat Reduction: New Approaches for the Second Decade. She helped to write the report on the RANSAC-Carnegie Endowment conference “Further Assessing the Scale of the Problems in the Russian Nuclear, Chemical, Biological and Missile Complexes: What More Needs to Be Done to Downsize the Complexes?” Following the Bush-Putin Presidential summit in late May, she wrote a critical analysis of the summit’s goals and achievements, and a summary of the criticisms of the Treaty of Moscow/Strategic Offensive Reduction Treaty. She also helped plan and organize a series of dual-sponsored RANSAC-Carnegie Endowment for International Peace events which will be taking place this summer. She helped RANSAC compile FY03 budgetary analysis and wrote a summary of the Senate Armed Services Committee’s Sub-Committee on Emerging Threats and Capabilities. She represented RANSAC at a variety of conferences, seminars, and hearings, including the Arms Control Association’s “Moving Beyond ‘MAD’? A Briefing on Nuclear Arms Control and the Bush-Putin Summit,” the Senate Foreign Relations Committee’s hearing on the Nuclear Posture Review, and the Brookings Institute’s “Preview of President Bush’s Trip to Russia: Assessing Current Relations Between Moscow and Washington.”
