Nuclear Politics Working Group
Scholarship on nuclear weapons and their effects on international politics is becoming an increasing strength of MIT’s Political Science Department, with numerous faculty and graduate students engaged and actively conducting and publishing research on nuclear questions, in addition to researchers based in CIS and SSP. This working group series is constructed to take advantage of – and further develop – this community. The nuclear politics working group will meet for lunch once per month during the semester throughout the academic year. There will be a mix of sessions: some “book group”-style discussions in which all participants read a recent book on nuclear weapons which serves as the starting point for discussion; and some sessions where participants present and receive feedback on their own research.
