Overview

Future challenges to arms control and non-proliferation will demand wider cooperation among increasingly interdependent nations. The author makes a case for a broader cooperative management approach to technology controls. Harmonious international cooperation among the majority of nations will be vital to achieving objectives linked to non-proliferation, disarmament and global socio-economic progress. This, in turn, could reduce the common dangers linked to weapons of mass destruction and terrorism, thereby enhancing international stability.
