in Challenging nuclearism

Log-in for full text

This chapter examines the attempts made since the end of the Cold War to reduce and eliminate nuclear weapons, to counter the sense of normality that nuclearism had created, by appealing to the nuclear weapon states to fulfil their disarmament obligations. It notes the Stimson Center reports, the Canberra Commission on the Elimination of Nuclear Weapons, the International Commission on Nuclear Nonproliferation and Disarmament (ICNND), and several other initiatives aimed at persuading the nuclear states to disarm. Also noted are the small steps that have been urged upon the nuclear states as a way of risk reduction and of preventing accidental nuclear use. The chapter concludes that all these efforts have had a very meagre impact on the nuclear weapon states, who, despite their promises to disarm, are intent on keeping their arsenals.
