Arms Control Post-Trump: A Revival of International Initiatives?

8. júna. 2021 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am

At the beginning of 2021, the international arms control community celebrated the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons’ entering into force, as well as the U.S.-Russian agreement on the New START extension. Although a multi-sided TPNW and a temporary freeze on the number of all types of warheads seem to be an important confidence-building measure for international community, they are of a limited value given that no agreement of significant decrease of arsenal is currently projected.

With the other outstanding multinational agreements, including Non-Proliferation Treaty, that will be debated in the summer, and possibilities of returning to the JCPOA, that includes discussions with Iran, a key objective of the next round of international talks should be deeper verifiable cuts in deployed strategic nuclear weapons and limits of a deterrence-only strategy, to which NATO and EU look towards. But are those even reachable expectations for 2021?
