Proliferation & Instability: How the Development of a New Nuclear State Moves from a Destabilizing to Stabilizing Effect

Hometown: Shrewsbury, Massachusettes

Department: International Relations

Advisor: Jeff Kaplow


This thesis examines the instability created by a new nuclear state, and how and when that instability progresses back into stability as the new nuclear state further develops its nuclear capability. This research is so vital because there is a noticeable gap in the literature on this issue. There is a strong literature on nuclear proliferation and on nuclear deterrence, but not on the space in between those two. This research aims to contribute to closing that gap.
