Mischief under the Nuclear Umbrella: Dynamics and Implications

Political scientist Nicolas Blarel (Leiden University) analsyses how non-state actors can (directly or directly) attempt to provoke conditions for a crisis between state actors that have nuclear capabilities. He argues that there is an urgent but complicated and understudied task to understand and manage the problem of terrorist activity in the context of a nuclearised environment: ‘existing multilateral and bilateral control regimes need to adapt to the new risks (…) and address the complex security dynamics more effectively.’
