There is a possibility of significant proliferation of nuclear weapons in the future, with various chains of proliferation as occurred earlier. This time, the chains could start from North Korea, Iran, and Burma (Myanmar) and spread respectively in Northeast Asia, in the Middle East and North Africa, and in Southeast Asia as well as in Eastern Europe, the southern cone of South America, and elsewhere. Peace science and peace economics could play constructive roles in preventing this dangerous development by studying the problem historically using case studies and by analyzing the economics and psychology behind proliferation decisions.
