(p.34) 2 Futility of Nuclear Weapons Risk Management in a Consensual Regime
Nuclear Weapons Counterproliferation

Jack I. Garvey

Oxford University Press

The present capabilities and limitations of counterproliferation are dependent on the voluntary adherence of governments to the different agreements and structures that are its components. These include the safeguards and inspection regime of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) and a collection of international agreements, both formal and informal. This chapter argues that improving the counterproliferation regime requires understanding, first, why this consent-based architecture is not working well enough for the management and containment of contemporary nuclear weapons risk. It analyzes nuclear terrorism, state-to-state nuclear weapons risk, and risk reduction by consent.

Keywords:   counterproliferation, nuclear non-proliferation, nuclear risk, nuclear terrorism, risk reduction
