Abstract:Why do countries build nuclear weapons? The revolutionary nature of the decision to go or not go nuclear highlights the importance of individual decision-makers, as leaders ultimately draw upon their own conceptions of themselves and the world around them. Despite the importance of this factor, the role of individual leaders' world views and strategic preferences has been largely omitted in the study of proliferation. This project advances a new analytical framework which provides a systematic and generalizable approach addressing how leaders' perceptions of the international system may influence nuclear proliferation decisions. By utilizing a multi-method approach employing qualitative, quantitative, and game theory methodologies, this project develops a framework that captures the interactive and strategic nature of international politics weighing how views of Self and Other influence decision-making. The result is a dyadic approach where the key to proliferation lies in understanding a leader's perception of the strategic interaction between actors. By understanding the motivations driving proliferation decisions we may ultimately develop policy solutions that might stem or even rollback nuclear proliferation. In developing this framework the project re-examines the proliferation decisions in several countries including South Africa, India, Libya, and Australia.
