Nuclear Proliferation and the Lessons of the India-Pakistan Conflict (Conversations with History)

5/16/2011; 56 minutes

Host Harry Kreisler welcomes Stanford political scientist Scott Sagan to discuss nuclear proliferation. Reviewing his work on nuclear safety, Sagan explains how organizational theory can enrich our understanding of international relations and deterrence. He analyzes the relevance of these insights for clarifying the threats posed by nuclear proliferation and then identifies the lessons of the India-Pakistan conflict, especially the Kargil War. He focuses on the meaning of the non-proliferation regime and adaptations to insure its resiliency, and he discusses alternative strategies for dealing with the threat posed by Iran. (#21339)
