Research output: Book/ReportBookpeer-review


The Oxford Handbook of Nuclear Security provides a comprehensive examination of efforts to secure sensitive nuclear assets and mitigate the risk of nuclear terrorism and other non-state actor threats. It aims to provide the reader with a holistic understanding of nuclear security through exploring its legal, political, and technical dimensions at the international, national and organisational levels. Recognising there is no one-size-fits-all approach to nuclear security, fundamental elements and concepts are explored in practice through a number of case studies. These serve to showcase how and why national and organisational approaches have diverged. Although focused on critiquing past and current activities, the handbook also considers unexplored but crucial aspects of nuclear security and how gaps in international efforts might be filled.
