South Asia at 20:
and Societal Impacts of the 1998 Nuclear Tests
May 1998 India tested five nuclear warheads.
Within days, Pakistan responded with six tests of its own, to balance
the overall number of nuclear tests in South Asia. Although the international community
condemned these tests, the popular response in both states was jubilant. Since then, the two states have expanded
their nuclear arsenals and incorporated nuclear strategy into their defense
plans. Policy-makers and scholars disagree about the effects this nuclear
standoff has had on stability and security in the region.
round table will explore how politics and society have been affected in
Pakistan, India, and the region as a result of the nuclear tests. We will also consider the military and
strategic consequences of a nuclear South Asia.
