Abstract:

In the past decade, it has become apparent that the Iranian Government is not willing to give up its Nuclear Fuel Program. Though it claims that its endeavors are merely the pursuit of making nuclear fuel, the threat of an unsupervised Iranian Nuclear Program brings great worry to the security of other Arab states in the region. In a larger context, as the Iranian Nuclear Program grows, how will it impact the International Security Environment and what responses will it bring from other key actors NATO, the European Union, the United States This thesis will examine various aspects of the Iranian Governments Nuclear Program. It will measure the political and economic impacts of the Iranian Nuclear Program, the security impact of the program on other states in the Arab Gulf Region, and the programs impact on global energy security. Finally, the thesis will explore possible Iranian nuclear ambitions and the implications of these ambitions for the International Security Environment.
