Non-Proliferation & International Security
The development and spread of weapons technology has always been of central importance in international relations, and it remains so in today's world with growing concern about the spread of chemical, biological and nuclear weapons and their means of delivery to both state and non-state actors. The MA programme enables students to examine the causes, processes and effects of weapons proliferation, the evolution and effectiveness of the international non-proliferation regime, and the way in which proliferation influences other key issues in international relations, including the causes of war and peace, military doctrine and strategy, and the rise (and decline) of the state as the central actor in international relations.
