Course information provided by the Courses of Study 2014-2015.

This course addresses contemporary issues of nuclear security. While it reflects on the past, it focuses on the present and future: what are the current proliferation challenges? What are the threats of nuclear terrorism? Why do states develop nuclear weapons and what types of negotiation strategies can prevent nuclearization?  Have recent efforts to expand the nonproliferation regime been successful and if not, why not? The goal of the course will be to understand where nuclear security issues stand in a post-Cold War context and where they are going.  Towards this end, the course will employ innovative approaches to the study of nuclear security: real-world simulations, social media, and spatial analysis.

When Offered Fall.
