The nuclear rivalry between India-Pakistan: A social constructivist analysis

Dr. Shoaib Pervez, Assistant Professor, Department of Social Sciences, Lahore School of Economics


The nuclear security relations between India-Pakistan are generally studied through traditional realist theories of state power. These theories are mostly interested in explaining rational motives behind states decisions to go nuclear and often give little credit to issues of state identity and norms behind such decisions of pristine importance.

This social constructivist approach explains the strategic behavior of states by problematizing states identities and brings to light some socio-cultural norms which led to such decisions in the first place.
