New Publication: The Crisis of Nuclear Arms Control

Dr Ulrich Kühn

In his article for the Journal ZeFKo Studies in Peace and Conflict, Dr. Ulrich Kühn examines the history of arms control between the United States and Russia. The article is divided into three parts. First, the thirty-year peak of arms control from 1972 to 2001 is examined. The paper identifies three key factors that are no longer present in the same way in the subsequent period. The second phase, the arms control crisis, was examined here for the period from 2002 to 2021. In the third part, Dr. Kühn derives potential scenarios as a consequence of the arms control crisis. For instance, the first signs of a nuclear arms race between Russia, the USA and China can already be identified.
