Nonproliferation Policy & Law

By carefully exploring the interplay of non-proliferation policy and legal rules in key nonproliferation controversies, the course will:

• Familiarize students with the basic tenets of international law and domestic legal frameworks
• Deepen students’ knowledge of selected nonproliferation rules – treaties, international agreements, and national laws – and their role in past and on-going nonproliferation crises

• Highlight how policy makers use legal tools to advance nonproliferation goals – and to deflect such efforts by others

• Assess the balance between rules and realpolitik, and the direction of current trends.
