Abstract

The cardinal changes of recent years have deeply affected the conditions of global and regional security. Strangely, these changes have little affected the approaches to the nonproliferation of nuclear weapons. All has changed in the field of security: the future role of nuclear and conventional weapons; the continued existence of deterrence; the relation between security and stability; and the prospects for regional conflicts. The old challenges are going away, but we continue to confront new ones. Now, it is not a global nuclear war but regional conflicts that cause fear. Aggressive nationalism is mixed into these conflicts, where nuclear weapons may become a military and political factor.
