The Challenges to Trust-Building in Nuclear Worlds
- Start date: 01 October 2009
- End date: 01 February 2012
Professor Nicholas Wheeler in the Department of International Politics at Aberystwyth University will undertake a multidisciplinary project focusing on the concept of trust-building in relation to nuclear-armed and arming states.
The project's multidisciplinary core research group will promote conceptual development by investigating the contribution that theorising about trust in different disciplines can make to international nuclear trust-building.
Professor Wheeler's work will include comparative case studies of nuclear rivalries that will seek to identify the ideas and beliefs that promoted trust in some cases but not in others, with a view to applying the 'best practice' identified to cases of nuclear mistrust.
The project will involve a series of regional workshops where scholars and practitioners will come together to explore lessons from history (eg missed opportunities for trust-building) with a view to developing new ideas for building trust in regions like South Asia and the Middle East.
The purpose of these theoretical and applied activities is to develop new policy agendas aimed at creating opportunities for promoting trust in relation to one of the most significant issues of global security, namely the future of nuclear weapons.
