2014 • 1 year, 8 months • International Peace & Security

MIT’s Security Studies Program (SSP) is a graduate-level research and educational program. It integrates technical and political analysis of national and international security problems. Despite the renaissance in scholarship on nuclear affairs, many of the emerging scholars in nuclear studies are isolated, both within their own fields, and unaware of the work in other disciplines and in other countries or in the policy community. SSP seeks support for the Nuclear Studies Research Initiative, which creates a platform for exchange, cross-fertilization, and mentorship for the new generation of scholars.

$345,000

MIT’s Security Studies Program is a top security studies program in the United States. This project investigates the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea’s (DPRK) response to financial sanctions, and in particular, the accumulated learning that comes from evading those measures. It examines the unintended consequences of counterproliferation sanctions on the DPRK and identifies vulnerabilities that could be exploited. It aims to generate policy relevant research that can inform government decision making, with the effect of improving DPRK policy and with that, increase the chances of a successful outcome regarding the North’s nuclear program.
