A Future Arms Control Agenda

(NS 118)
October 1-2, 1999
Bofors Hotel, Karlskoga, Sweden
Organizers: Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI). The international program committee consisted of Ian Anthony, SIPRI; Hans Blix, Director General emeritus, International Atomic Energy Agency; Bo Huldt, National Defense College, Sweden; Catherine Kelleher, Aspen Institute Berlin; Sverre Lodgaard, Norwegian Institute of International Affairs; Adam Daniel Rotfeld, SIPRI; Lothar Rühl, University of Cologne; and Daniel Tarschys, Stockholm University. The organizing committee consisted of Ian Anthony, Adam Daniel Rotfeld and Daniel Tarschys.

The symposium gathered about 50 prominent researchers, experts and activists as well as former political decision-makers, altogether representing 22 countries and various national and multilateral security organizations. The symposium's goal was to promote intellectual and political debate on a future arms control agenda, in light of the international security changes that have occurred since the end of the Cold War. The main point of departure was that arms control should not be viewed as an artificial process, in which the negotiating of treaties and agreements has a value per se. Instead, a new arms control agenda should be viewed as an instrument for establishing a new cooperative security order.

The symposium consisted of four sessions: Security Environment and Arms Control; Global, Regional and Subregional Dimensions of Arms Control and Disarmament; A Comprehensive Approach to Arms Control and Disarmament; and Transparency, Verification and Safeguards. At the end of the symposium, a number of audience members participated in an open panel discussion on Demilitarization of International Relations and the Future of Arms Control and Disarmament.

The symposium documents were published by Oxford University Press in 2000. A separate report, based on the account of the symposium rapporteur and entitled The Stockholm Agenda for Arms Control, was published by SIPRI in November 1999.
