Goay 1 Michelle Goay Professor Rathbun IR 210 October 7, 2019 Nuclear proliferation Proliferation controls: 1) Payne, Keith B. “Realism, Idealism, Deterrence, and Disarmament.” Strategic Studies Quarterly , vol. 13, no. 3, 2019, pp. 7–37. JSTOR , . This article examines the idealistic and realistic approaches to nonproliferation. It is argued that in the current period of post-Cold War tranquility, it cannot yet be predicted that a similar situation will not arise. Payne cautions that the hasty promotion of disarmament could lead to its own downfall. Payne analyzes both approaches somewhat objectively as, examining each goal and its consequences. It is ultimately decided that realistically, it is better to be safe than sorry. Empirical evidence as well as counter arguments are provided to build his claims. Author Keith B. Payne holds expertise in this field while the article was published in Strategic Studies Quarterly , a credible journal. 2) Knopf, Jeffrey W. “Nuclear Disarmament and Nonproliferation: Examining the Linkage Argument.” International Security , vol. 37, no. 3, 2012, pp. 92–132., . This article examines the correlation between the maintenance of nuclear weapons and the probability of nonproliferation. Knopf examines the direct and indirect linkages as well as the possible absence of relation between disarmament and nuclear proliferation while also discussing the opposing hypotheses. Analysis of the many potential arguments leads to the conclusion that although nonproliferation policies strengthen its cause, it is not the most effective solution In order to more efficiently analyze the arguments behind the hypotheses, they are grouped into

Knopf is able to present both sides objectively while also providing empirical data to draw a fair conclusion. This article would be a useful resource for one arguing for the effectiveness of disarmament efforts. Author Jeffery W. Knopf holds expertise in this field while the article was published in International Security , a credible journal. 3) Coe, Andrew J., and Jane Vaynman. “Collusion and the Nuclear Nonproliferation Regime.” The Journal of Politics , vol. 77, no. 4, 2015, pp. 983–997., doi:10.1086/682080. Coe and Vaynman theorize that successful nonproliferation is only possible with the complete collaboration from international superpowers - as well as some states - while also agreeing to a considerable monetary deal to keep motions affordable. Through examination of their theory and evidence, it is concluded that the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons (NPT) would satisfy their predictions had there not been failure of the states to comply. Coe and Vaynman discuss other theories in relation to the NPT as well as why they landed on their verdict. They provide empirical evidence to support their statements as well as the possible future implications that the study could have. In providing counter theories, Coe and Vaynman are able to further
