In this South Asian Voices  virtual roundtable Dr. Nina Tannenwald, Dr. Manpreet Sethi, and Dr. Sannia Abdullah examine the role of the nuclear taboo in India and Pakistan. The webinar responds to Nina Tannenwald’s Stimson Center policy paper, “23 Years of Nonuse: Does the Nuclear Taboo Constrain India and Pakistan?” and a subsequent South Asian Voices review series.

During this roundtable conversation, panelists discuss whether the nonuse of nuclear weapons in South Asia over the past two decades can be attributed to normative concerns, the impact of nationalist rhetoric and global arms control norms on the nuclear taboo in India and Pakistan, and how the nuclear taboo can be strengthened going forward.
