The Vertical Proliferation Issue: The Europeans and Arms Control

  • Harald Müller

Abstract

An unfettered nuclear arms race is not conducive to maintaining an effective consensus on global non-proliferation policy. This is, in a nutshell, the core of the relationship between vertical and horizontal proliferation. How strong this linkage really is remains contested. That it exists cannot escape anybody who witnessed the Third Review Conference of the NPT.1
