dc.description.abstractObjective: In recent years, much attention has been devoted to the potential regional impact of a nuclear-armed Iran. In particular, Saudi Arabia has been of interest since it has been assumed that if Iran goes nuclear so too will Saudi Arabia. Previous analysis in this context has been framed by a debate that has oscillated between those who believe Iran is intent upon acquiring nuclear weapons and those who maintain this threat is exaggerated. This research will generate insights into Saudi Arabia’s nuclear intentions and how these are influenced by Iran. In addition, it will explore measures that the West might adopt to strengthen Saudi Arabia’s commitment to nuclear restraint. Additionally, this project will provide a new perspective on proliferation behavior in the Middle East, which could be applied by analysts and policy makers to develop new measures to undermine Saudi aspirations for nuclear weapons and strengthen its commitment to nuclear restraint.en_US
