Globalization of The Atom (Globatom)
There are over 13,000 nuclear warheads currently, and further proliferation can increase the likelihood of nuclear war, resulting in severe consequences. That is why understanding the causes and dynamics of nuclear proliferation is imperative. Globalization of the Atom, Globatom, is a project that aims to explore the various avenues countries use to acquire nuclear technology and the role these pathways play in the spread of nuclear weapons.
Nuclear Export Early Warning and Control System
The nuclear market is the setting whereby buyers and sellers exchange nuclear technology. This nuclear trade entails the transfer of nuclear technology such as research reactors, power reactors, and enrichment and reprocessing (ENR) plants. Nuclear Export Early Warning and Control System project seeks to examine the effects of the nuclear market on nuclear proliferation which involves the horizontal spread of nuclear weapons or the acquisition of atomic bombs by individual countries.
Changing Pathways to the Bomb: The Subtle Effects of the Nuclear Nonproliferation Regime
Has the nonproliferation regime (NPR) succeeded in reducing the spread of nuclear weapons? If so, how, and by how much? Changing Pathways to the Bomb: The Subtle Effects of the Nuclear Nonproliferation Regime project seeks to analyze how the NPR has altered the ways states pursue nuclear weapons over time and infer how much it has thereby delayed states’ programs and thus reduced the extent of proliferation.
