Nuclear Nonproliferation, Safeguards, and Security
in the 21st Century
Planning for the future calls for a good understanding of the threats that will confront us and tools that are available to meet the threats. The course concludes by challenging the students in two exercises that anticipate the future.
First Exercise - Students will be presented with a description of a “new” but fictional situation involving a potential nuclear threat. They will then be required to make decisions on unilateral, bilateral, and multilateral actions that need to be taken. The students will develop strategies for engagement with others, for example, other countries, the IAEA, NSG, or the UNSC.
Second Exercise -
Students will critically assess the current nonproliferation regime and
then propose a 21st Century nuclear nonproliferation and nuclear security
regime from the bottom up. Students will identify key elements and programs,
including means to strengthen or add to existing programs.
