From South Korean and U.S. contributors, this collection of papers is intended to help researchers, students, and the general public better understand the current state of the nuclear non-proliferation regime, particularly the threats posed by the nuclear programs of North Korea, Iran, and Syria, as well as non-state groups. Chapters address U.S-South Korean strategic cooperation, the evolution of U.S. nuclear strategy, the current state of the non-proliferation regime, combating North Korea’s nuclear blackmail, the strategic implications of nuclear weapons in India and Pakistan, nuclear weapons and non-state actors, challenges to non-proliferation spurred by expanding nuclear, and China’s growing nuclear power program. The text was put together by the U.S.- Korea Institute at The Paul H. Nitze School of Advanced International Studies (SAIS), Johns Hopkins University, in preparation for the March 2012 Nuclear Security Summit held in South Korea.
