As the first anniversary of the signing of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action with Iran approaches, it is time to look ahead to the long-term implications of the agreement.
Five months into the Iran deal’s implementation, the IAEA reports that Tehran is in compliance with its obligations. But there are some potential problems on the horizon.
Four scenarios for the future as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action approaches its one year mark.
An upcoming meeting will decide whether India will be allowed to join the Nuclear Suppliers Group. Member states should think carefully.
The nuclear agreement with Iran includes innovations that could bolster confidence that other countries’ nuclear programs will be exclusively peaceful.
The global nuclear order appears increasingly tense, primarily because many states feel that the structure and distribution of benefits is unjust. Among the states that will determine how the nuclear order will adapt, Argentina, Brazil, China, India, and Pakistan are particularly important.
Tensions in the nuclear order are on the rise. What role can ‘middle ground,’ or emerging, nuclear states play in shaping the global debate on nuclear issues?
The regime for managing dual-use nuclear technology has proved remarkably successful to date, but it is becoming increasingly stressed and the prospects for buttressing it are bleak.
The Nuclear Suppliers Group would be well advised to answer some critical questions before it decides to admit India and Pakistan.
While Japan is not a party to the Iran nuclear deal, it played an important role in its conclusion and could prove influential in its implementation.
