Mainstreamed or Sidelined? Non-NPT States and the Nuclear Order

Our Project Leader, Sebastian Brixey-Williams, asked a Carnegie panel of nuclear practitioners from India, Israel, and Pakistan whether they saw their states as responsible nuclear-armed states, and what criteria they use to make such an assertion. Not surprisingly, all the participants said yes, citing various criteria such as nuclear security, nuclear safety, mindfulness of maintaining stability, transparency and a robust and effective civil society.
