The Susan Strange Lecture 2020:
The International Political Economy: sources of nuclear proliferation
When: Thursday 13 February 2020
Speaker: Professor Etel Solingen, the Thomas T. and Elizabeth C. Tierney Chair in Peace and Conflict Studies at the University of California Irvine and the Susan Strange Visiting Professor, 2019-20 at LSE.
Chair: Professor Karen E Smith, Professor of International Relations, LSE
The 2020 Susan Strange lecture paid tribute to Professor Strange's contributions by focusing on the international political economy dimensions of nuclear choices, for or against nuclear weapons.
Whereas relative power and security dilemmas have dominated the study of nuclear proliferation for decades, an approach centered on the "cui bono" (who benefits) question reveals how domestic distributional implications related to the global economy have systematic effects on states’ nuclear choices.
