Return to 2013 Carnegie International Nuclear Policy Conference

Proliferation and Regime Change

Event Panel Washington, DC, Ronald Reagan Building International Trade Center, Polaris  – 2:00 PM – 3:30 PM
Summary
Are states with nuclear weapons immune from externally driven efforts to promote regime change? Are regime change policies justified by nuclear proliferation by outlier states?
 

Are states with nuclear weapons immune from externally driven efforts to promote regime change? Libya’s Qaddafi came clean, was driven from power, and ultimately killed by rebels. North Korea has nuclear weapons, and the Kim family still retains power. How do states like Iran interpret these examples? What lessons do these cases hold for Western powers? For Russia and China? Are regime change policies justified by nuclear proliferation by outlier states?

Ellen Laipson, Antonio Guerriero, Bijan Khajehpour, Danielle Pletka, and Bruno Tertrais discuss these cases and more. Share your comments and questions below.
