Beenish Pervaiz


I am a third year Ph.D. candidate in Political Science with a focus on International Relations and Security. My research interests include the study of nuclear strategy and decision making in an era of emerging and disruptive technologies, evolving strategic cultures and international norms with an eye towards regional nuclear powers including issues of security and strategic stability in Southern Asia. I am also interested in exploring how resource constrained and developing countries institutionalize and modernize their nuclear weapons arsenals and the consequences this has on the overall economic development of the country. I hold a Master’s degree from Stanford University in International Policy Studies and have completed my undergraduate studies in Economics and Political Science from Lahore University of Management Sciences in Pakistan.
