    The nuclear ban treaty and its possible ramifications

    01 November 2016.  Frustration at the slow pace of nuclear-disarmament efforts has fuelled a drive to establish a nuclear ban treaty. While the initiative could put pressure on nuclear-weapons states to move towards disarmament at a quicker pace, Paulina Izewicz argues that any attempt to decouple their perceived need to retain nuclear weapons from the broader strategic context may prove to be an exercise in futility.

    Looking forward to the 2016 EU Non-Proliferation and Disarmament Conference

    28 October 2016.  2016 has been an important year in the non-proliferation and disarmament field. January saw the high of implementation day for the Iran deal, September the low of North Korea’s fifth nuclear test, and on 27 October UN member states voted to begin negotiations on a treaty to ban nuclear weapons entirely. These events and issues will be debated at this upcoming EU conference, introduced here by Matthew Cottee.

    From the archive: Clinton’s running mate, Tim Kaine, offers his views on military intervention

    24 July 2016.  In a candid address to the IISS Manama Dialogue in 2013, Hillary Clinton’s running mate, Tim Kaine, identified four key elements that must be addressed if policymakers are to convince a sceptical public of the need for military engagement. The speech offers a fascinating insight into his personal views on military intervention, and how he would seek to win over his public if elected to office.

    Introduction

    02 February 2016. 

    While Japan, South Korea and Taiwan are in good standing with their non-proliferation obligations, each of the three makes for an interesting case study on potential proliferation. Given the well-developed status of their civilian nuclear industries, all three democracies in Northeast Asia can be called latent nuclear powers.

  • Adelphi Books

    Conclusions

    02 February 2016. 

    The essays of this volume demonstrate that the three Northeast Asian democracies are likely to remain latent nuclear powers for the foreseeable future. Yet, the reasons for their latency vary, owing partially to their individual nuclear histories.
