About this product
- DescriptionThis volume comprehensively covers a range of issues related to dynamic rm change in the current major international arms control regimes related to nuclear, biological, and chemical weapons; small arms and light weapons; cluster munitions; and antipersonnel mines. Arms control policies of all of the key established and rising state actors are considered, as well as those of naligned countries, ngovernmental organisations, and international governing bodies.
Recent studies on multilateral arms control tend to focus mostly on structure, by which opportunities and constraints for action are created. This volume pays equal attention to agency, through which opportunities and constraints to produce change or maintain the status quo are handled. In addition-and in greater depth than in recent studies-the volume ackwledges the force of moral and ethical impulses (alongside such factors as political, legal, and techlogical change) in the evolution of arms control rms.
The volume begins with a look at the structure of regimes, at the conflicts residing in these structures, and at the dynamic processes in which these conflicts are worked out. The impact of extrinsic factors on rm dynamics is considered next, including techlogical change and shifts in attitudes and power structures. Essays on the role of agency in driving rm change conclude the volume, with a particular focus on rm entrepreneurship and the importance of ackwledging the competing justice claims surrounding rm-change efforts.
