Chapter Summary

The general debate on disarmament and arms control that was being prepared with in the UN after the end of the Second World War was re-directed to an entirely new focus: weapons of mass destruction, particularly nuclear weapons. This chapter presents the current situation within the Conference on Disarmament, and examines in more detail the circumstances that have led to it. Following an analysis of the general climate that fostered the current situation within the Conference, the chapter depicts individual proposals for resuming the work of the Conference in their chronological order, and attempts to interpret the reasons for their failure. In addition, it looks at each of the issues more closely, confirming the special connection between individual proposals for resuming the work of the Conference and the key items on its agenda, and determines their place and significance within the complex dynamics of the Conference on Disarmament.
