We are pleased to announce that Associate Professor Vipin Narang has won this year’s “Emerging Scholar” award from the International Studies Association’s International Security Section.
The Emerging Scholar Award, which will be awarded annually, is meant to recognize scholars who have made (through their body of publications) the most significant contribution to the field of security studies.
One committee member praised Vipin’s research for "challenging core tenets of our previous understanding of nuclear issues and emphasizing the heterogeneity of the experiences of nuclear-armed states."

His research interests include nuclear proliferation and strategy, South Asian security, and general security studies. His first book Nuclear Strategy in the Modern Era (Princeton University Press, 2014) on the deterrence strategies of regional nuclear powers won the 2015 ISA International Security Studies Section Best Book Award. He is currently working on his second book, Strategies of Nuclear Proliferation (Princeton University Press, under contract), which explores how states pursue nuclear weapons. His work has been published in several journals including International Security, Journal of Conflict Resolution, The Washington Quarterly,and International Organization.
