India's Nuclear Behaviour

​Being a part of the nuclear​ community provides for economic integration, brings the state into the international arena, and makes the international community more involved in dealing with its secu​rity threats.

  • If you missed this seminar, the speaker Kanica Rakhra has written a blog post at the PRIO blog on te topic of India's nuclear behaviour.

At this se​​minar, Kanica Rakhra will discuss the concept of nuclear behaviour and learning, and explain how India exemplifies what can be termed as markers of behavior that seek trust from the internat​ional community. 

As a non-signatory to the Non-P​​roliferation Treaty, India has consistently opposed the dichotomy of this treaty, while upholding its principles by not participating in any proliferation n​​etworks. 

  • Has this helped India as it seeks en​​try into the Nuclear Suppliers Group?
  • What are the other markers o​f behavior that may have helped the international community develop a trust in India?
  • In light of current events, how ca​n India show leadership in nuclear disarmament initiatives?

She is an ICSSR doctoral fellow and a member of the Early Career Committee at the International Society of Political Psychology (ISPP).
