The issue of nuclear proliferation and the attempts to stop or minimise the spread of nuclear weapons
continues to be at the top of global security agenda. Can some of the policies of those countries – as well as
the policies of the international community – be explained by using the framework of international
relations theories? What can these theories explain and how do they explain the particular phenomena?
– You have to select a certain aspects (nuclear test, missile test, a particular treaty etc)
– You have to select a particular case study: North Korea or/and Iran for example
– Another example is to explain why a number of states have abandoned their nuclear weapons.
