Abstract

Despite the heightened level of concern about weapons of mass destruction since 9/11, negotiations for strengthening the WMD nonproliferation regime have been somewhat less than productive. The fact that the material and technology for producing such weapons is also used for peaceful purposes helps explain the limited progress. Lack of trust, concern about equality and fairness as well as the tendency to use negotiations for ulterior purposes also make progress difficult. After considering these points, the article discusses some of the incentives and disincentives that have been used to influence positions on the nonproliferation issue and how paying attention to the needs and interests of the would-be proliferators might increase the chances of reaching mutually beneficial agreements.
