Content

This unit introduces students to the complex issues involved in the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction, which include nuclear, chemical, and biological weapons, and efforts to promote nonproliferation.

This complexity is growing with technological advances and structural changes in the supply environment, as well as the changing political contexts of both proliferation and non-proliferation.
