Constructivism and social psychology in peace studies: Understanding nuclear nonproliferation and disarmament in East Asia

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleOther


What guidance can academics offer to promote peace in East Asia? This article argues that using international relations theory - in particular, constructivism - and social psychology allows for a better understanding of ways to encourage nuclear nonproliferation and disarmament in the region. Examples from East Asia, including China, Japan, South Korea, North Korea, and Taiwan, illustrate the utility of these lessons.
