Are the politics associated with preventing nuclear weapons proliferation and reducing the risk of large scale disasters all that different from other international politics?

Often we assume the answer is yes – or that it should be yes if it’s not already. This sentiment is partly rooted in the assumption that the potentially huge and negative consequences of failure on these issues should make the politics different. But is this actually true? Enia’s research tackles this broad question by exploring the international and comparative politics of regimes and institutions around both nuclear nonproliferation and natural disasters. Contrary to what many assume, the politics that underpin these extraordinary events are often very ordinary.
