Thinking about Pakistan's Nuclear Security in Peacetime, Crisis and War

IDSA Occassional Paper No. 12

This essay seeks to collate, sort through, and organise the reams of publicly available information and speculation to provide a systematic assessment of Pakistan’s nuclear security. It will attempt to concretise the problem by examining which scenarios are associated with what types of nuclear risks. Such a review of available evidence leads to the conclusion that the Pakistani state has taken visible and important steps to secure the arsenal.
