Abstract:

Incorporating the model of clubs from Sociology, Psychology and Economics to IR provides a workable and useful model to scrutinize and evaluate states' motivations for action. The primary argument of this paper is that “nation-state clubs” as a metaphor, is part of the social interaction of states, and serves international expectations and domestic needs, similar to functions that clubs fulfill in human society. It concentrates on the motivations and preferences of states to invest valuable resources on a large-scale in national space or nuclear programs. These states are perceived in the political discourse as the nuclear or space clubs. It shows that membership in such clubs is a useful tool to project power, improve instrumental capabilities, international status and prestige, strengthen self-esteem and pride of the people and reinforce political support of the regime. The paper is composed of three parts. First it depicts on the role of clubs in human society and scrutinizes the values and functions fulfilled by clubs for humans. Second it draws from the individual level to international relations, stressing similarities and important differences. Third it discusses the dynamics of the space club in the politics of space.
