Perspectives on Arms control, Disarmament and Non-proliferation
21 June 2021 - 8 h 00 min - 17 h 00 min
Goethe University Frankfurt
This seminar will introduce students to fundamental issues and enduring controversies of arms control, with a special focus on nuclear weapons as the paradigmatic case of arms control. It will explore cross connections between the development of arms control and International Relations theory as well as recent challenges posed by technological and political developments, including controversies over “nuclear justice” or the geopolitical implications of arms control negotiations. At the end of the seminar, students should have a solid base of knowledge about key arms control regimes, both historical and current, in addition to insights into the practical activities of arms control professionals and the debates surrounding arms control within IR.
