Building a road to nuclear disarmament, bridging the gap between competing approaches, Rizwana Abbasi - Paperback

Summary
"This book focuses on comprehending the contemporary global security environment, creating a new roadmap for nuclear disarmament by creating a balance between deterrence supporters and disarmament advocators. The author identifies the divide between competing approaches such as traditional security-centric aspects and humanity-centered disarmament perspectives, tackling the complex question of how to balance some states' requirements for effective nuclear deterrence with other states' long-term desire for a nuclear-free world. The book explores how new technologies such as cyber and AI advances are available to more countries than nuclear technology, and could level the playing field for weaker nuclear weapons states. It also looks into the issues which continue to be obstacles in the way of convincing the nuclear weapon states (NWS) on nuclear disarmament. The author argues that the gap between deterrence supporters and disarmament advocators can be filled by creating a new environment for renewed consensus on achieving a world free of nuclear weapons. This book provides a deeper understanding and critical analysis of how global evolving parallel traditional security and normative trends relating to nuclear weapons can be bridged in order to make the disarmament debate practically achievable. This volume will be of great interest to students and scholars, researchers, policy makers, NGOs and members of the diplomatic community, in the fields of security studies, strategic studies and nuclear policy"
