Issues related to nuclear non-proliferation in South Asia arising from the nuclear programs and ambitions of India and Pakistan have long been the subject of emotive policy debate and intense scholarly research. Both Islamabad and New Delhi acknowledge that they have the capability to build nuclear weapons and the need to retain the ‘nuclear option’; at the same time, they also deny actually done so. The complexities arising out of such ambiguities are compounded by the fact that neither India nor Pakistan have signed the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty. Apart from the contributions made by some of the leading experts in both India and Pakistan on this subject, it also contains contributions on this issue by scholars from Bangladesh, Nepal and Sri Lanka.
