Abstract

Unmanned aerial vehicles have recently garnered the attention of citizens and policymakers around the world. The goal of this research is to examine the factors that contribute to the proliferation of drones. I explore the nuclear proliferation literature for factors that contributed to nuclear proliferation and examine the degree to which those same factors apply to drone proliferation in the case studies of Nigeria, Israel, and the United States.
