This paper provides a detailed assessment of the behavior of nuclear command-and-control systems during peace, crisis and war. It highlights, in particular, the tensions and trade-offs that emerge once systems move away from peacetime configurations. The paper argues that there are significant parallels with the Cold War experience, but that particular complexities in South Asia raise real concerns about the risks of nuclear escalation and war. The paper concludes by asking whether the United States could not do more to help India and Pakistan manage their nuclear command-and-control systems more effectively, to help the stabilization of nuclear South Asia.
