"Nuclear Weapons and International Conflict
T.V. Paul
James McGill Professor, McGill University,Montreal, Canada

Conversations host Harry Kreisler welcomes Professor T. V. Paul of McGill University in Canada for a discussion of the non-use of nuclear weapons since the dropping of the atomic bomb on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Paul analyzes the dangers (including possible use of nuclear weapons) posed by the India-Pakistan conflict. He focuses on the deep seated causes of the rivalry and possible routes to stabilization. Puzzled by why the great powers have not used nuclear weapons since the Hiroshima and Nagasaki attacks, he analyzes the factors that account for this tradition. He then examines the changing international environment and its impact on the non-use tradition addressing the dangers posed by terrorist organizations and the development of a new generation of weapons that lower the threshold for use. Finally, he discusses the problem posed by countries such as Iran that seek to acquire nuclear weapons in order to enhance their international power and prestige.
