Brad Potter ’08 received the Frank Shatz Prize for his essay titled “Charting a Path to Repair the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Regime.”

p. The essay focuses on Article IV of the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty, which states that countries can utilize nuclear power for peaceful purposes. This clause has been a central issue of U.S. foreign policy as certain governments, such as Iran and North Korea, have used power to justify their nuclear developments.

p. Potter’s essay suggests that all Treaty participants should discontinue uranium enrichment and instead create a nuclear “fuel bank,” which would produce subsidized uranium to countries in the Treaty.

p. The Frank Shatz Prize is awarded to College seniors who have published outstanding essays in the College’s Monitor Journal of International Studies throughout the year.
