ANALYSIS




From Vienna to New York: Diverging attitudes and expectations among NPT members spell trouble for the 2015 NPT Review
Rob van Riet

The resurgence of Cold War style rhetoric between Russia and "the West", ongoing concerns over North Korea's nuclear program, a still elusive nuclear deal with Iran, and the recurrent fear of nuclear-armed non-state actors all stand as stark reminders that humanity still lives with the unacceptable risk of nuclear war. In this timely and important article, Rob van Riet reviews the promises and ambiguities of recent conferences, summits, working group sessions, legal actions, and negotiations on nuclear weapons, and evaluates the potential of the NPT review conference in May this year to make real political progress towards the goal of nuclear disarmament.

Men Who Hate Women: Gender, Empathy, & Power in The United States' Rape Culture
Brett Goldberg

In the United States, gender defines far more than how people dress, or the roles they must assume in their intimate relationships. Gender socialization sets the stage for how individuals think and interact with the world around them. In the United States, male gendering socializes aggression, domination, and hatred for women. This paper examines the role of socializing hegemonic masculinity in eliminating empathy and fostering entitlement resulting in what is known as rape culture. By examining socialization and men's violence against women within a cultural context, gender-based violence can be seen as a societal problem, not an issue of maladapted individuals.
