Fiercely Negotiated Ukrainian Nuclear Disarmament

  • Liang Tuang Nah
Part of the New Security Challenges book series (NSECH)


Turning to Ukraine, this chapter will cover analysis considering realist, liberalist and constructivist factors in the debates between those supporting nuclear disarmament and those who advocated the retention of nuclear arms, and elaborate on what the leadership in Kiev successfully obtained through negotiations, to satisfy the security-based realist and economics-based liberalist requirements of the Ukrainian parliament such that it would approve total disarmament. As with the chapter on South Africa, content substantiating this book’s tripartite theory framework will be provided.
