Successful arms control, disarmament and the control of emerging technologies are major challenges for peace and security. The interdisciplinary project team examines the state of the art of cooperative instruments in those areas and how to strengthen their operation. The team aims to contribute with its scholarly findings to the political process. The project, funded for four years (2019-2022) by the Federal Foreign Office, explores four thematic areas in which independent expertise is particularly crucial:

 

  • Arms control of nuclear and other weapons of mass destruction
  • Preventive control of emerging technologies
  • Conventional arms control
  • Future Issues of the European Peace and Security Order
