Case Study Series Carnegie Council on Ethics and International Affairs This case study is one of a series commissioned and edited by the Carnegie Council on Ethics and International Affairs. The purpose of each case study is to address competing moral claims in the conduct of international affairs in a format useful to college and university teachers. Case studies encourage students to think and argue analytically about ethical dilemmas. In addition, they pro- mote interdisciplinary thinking about decision making and international politics. This emphasis on decision making makes the most of the human element in politics—the real-life choices and conflicting values of the actors involved in the case. Each case presents relevant facts and circumstances pertaining to a specific subject area and relates them to an overarching ethical principle. Case studies set the parameters for classroom debate. Avoiding academic jargon whenever possible, they are accessible to an undergraduate audience but useful to all students of international affairs. At the back of each case a number of suggestions for organizing classroom discussion are offered, as well as a list of related read- ings on the case topic. The case studies series is part of the Carnegie Council’s ongoing Education and Studies programs. Foremost an educational institution, the Carnegie Council is committed to the development of new scholarship and peda- gogical tools in the field of ethics and international affairs.

In May 1998, India conducted five nuclear tests and declared itself a nuclear power, shattering a global norm against proliferation. Around the world, countries such as the United States, China, and the members of the European Union reacted with shock and condemnation. Claiming that India had “sucked Pakistan into the arms race,” Pakistan responded shortly thereafter with its own series of nuclear tests.
