Location: James B. Hunt Jr. Library, Room 4106

The effects of international inducements on the internal politics of states that violate nuclear nonproliferation commitments remain highly contested. What conditions influence relative receptivity to positive and negative inducements? How have sanctions, trade, aid, investments, diplomacy, financial measures and military threats affected different groups? How, when and why were those effects translated into compliance with non-proliferation rules? Have inducements been sufficiently biting or too harsh, too little, too late or just right for each case? These and other questions will be discussed at this talk scheduled for 1:30 p.m. on Oct. 22.
