The nucleon-nucleon interaction is derived from interacting solitons in the Skyrme model. An introduction to the Skyrme model is given and the quantization of Skyrmions in terms of collective degrees of freedom is described. An approach to study interacting Skyrmions is presented and numerical results for the low-energy configurations are discussed. The nucleon-nucleon potential, obtained in perturbation theory, agrees semiquantitatively with phenomenology.
