The nuclear (dis)order is shifting. Russia’s full-scale invasion of Ukraine has further accelerated the erosion of the arms control architecture which started to become brittle some time ago. With Vladimir Putin’s announcement to suspend Russia’s participation in the New START treaty, many ask if we have to say farewell to nuclear arms control. In parallel, new and old nuclear powers around the world have taken efforts to modernize or even increase their atomic arsenals. Technological trends are posing challenges to strategic stability. On the multilateral dimension opposing views on nuclear weapons and fragmentation upon different approaches of disarmament continues to linger and further nourish the frustration with the implementation of the Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) and the inequality of the nuclear (dis)order.
How will Europe handle this situation? This event will bring together arms control experts, practitioners, and activists from across Europe to assess and evaluate the current situation. The conference aims to provide a forum that fosters innovative policy ideas to reduce threats and risks. Thereby, we focus particularly on the European «nuclear non-haves» and ask what role they could play in the future.
