International Security Studies at Yale presents
Matthew Fuhrmann, Professor of Political Science, Texas A&M University:
“Influence Without Arms: Weaponless Deterrence, Preventive War, and Arms Races in the Shadow of Nuclear Proliferation.”
The Nuclear Security Program at International Security Studies hosts a conversation on nuclear latency with Matthew Fuhrmann, Professor of Political Science, Texas A&M University.
Only ten countries have built nuclear weapons. Many others have “peaceful” nuclear programs that give them the means to arm quickly if they so desired. This project analyzes how bomb-making capacity — known as nuclear latency — influences war, peace, and international bargaining.
Fuhrmann’s research focuses on international relations, nuclear proliferation, and armed conflict. He is the author of Atomic Assistance: How “Atoms for Peace” Programs Cause Nuclear Insecurity and the coauthor of Nuclear Weapons and Coercive Diplomacy.
