Regional Measures to Reduce Demand for Armaments

  • William J. Durch

Abstract

In the international arms market, supply meets demand, which arises both from institutional interests and from the welter of security concerns, internal and external, real and imagined, reviewed in chapter 3. Trying to curb this market from the supply-side alone is not likely to be effective, yet altering demand for arms is not easy, nor can it be expected to happen overnight. Where there is at least a modicum of cooperation in two or more states’ relations, various tools and techniques known collectively as “confidence- and security-building measures” (CSBMs) may ease the demand for new armaments, reduce the likelihood of conflict, and complement arms control agreements.
