Disarmament, Arms Control, and Nonproliferation
21 February 2014 - 8 h 00 min - 17 h 00 min
The course is intended to impart a comprehensive academic understanding of the origins, theory and practice of disarmament, arms control and nonproliferation. Students will explore the intellectual, political, strategic and other underpinnings of these approaches to conflict prevention and mitigation and how they have evolved, particularly since the end of the Cold War. There will be an emphasis on nuclear weapons, but chemical and biological weapons, conventional weapons and space weapons will also be considered.
