Book Description

This title was first published in 2002. Examining the development of and rationale behind the Ukrainian export control system, this text uses an original theoretically informed case study methodology to explain how and why Ukraine has continued to emphasize the importance of not only maintaining but augmenting its export control system. Furthermore, it assesses the utility of four international relations approaches in explaining non-proliferation export control development. This ground-breaking study on Ukrainian politics and economics is ideally suited to audiences of European, Ukrainian and US policy-makers, academics and specialists in security and political economy.
