Abstract

The collapse of the 1987 Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty (INF) was the most recent chapter in the erosion of the cold war-originated system of nuclear arms control. This paper examines the legacy of nuclear arms control, recent developments and the causes of the current crisis; and analyses the impact on European security. Finally, it presents options on how the European Union and its member states might become better engaged in rethinking the nuclear arms control architecture.
