We study the ways in which geopolitical shifts and technological developments contribute to nuclear and missile proliferation. This includes exploring proliferation “hard cases”, such as Iran and North Korea, as well as global regimes, including the Non-Proliferation Treaty and UN Security Council Resolution 1540.
Our work includes conducting detailed research into the spread of sensitive technologies, as well as convening dialogues on international approaches to dissuade states from proliferating. We also cooperate with RUSI’s Centre for Financial Crime and Security Studies (CFCS) on counterproliferation financing.
This programme aims to reduce and mitigate the risks related to the financing of weapons of mass destruction, as well as drive global thought leadership through timely and relevant policy-oriented research and analysis.
