Dr. Denny Roy, an APCSS associate professor, has published a new paper entitled “Going Straight, But Somewhat Late: China and Nuclear Nonproliferation.”According to Dr. Roy’s paper, “Analysts widely agree that China has demonstrated a more robust commitment to nonproliferation in recent years, including strengthening export control procedures and participating in international nonproliferation regimes.

“Nevertheless, the problem of Chinese nuclear proliferation persists. The focus of attention has shifted from transfers directed by officials as an instrument of government policy to sales by Chinese firms that occur because of gaps in the Chinese domestic enforcement network.”

The article looks at international viewpoints on whether China is part of solution or problem when it comes or nonproliferation. “Going Straight, But Somewhat Late: China and Nuclear Nonproliferation” is available at: www.apcss.org
