Global Security

The Global Security programme focuses on challenges to Europe connected with the existence nuclear weapons and other weapons of mass destruction, as well as delivery vehicles. It promotes the reduction of the role of nuclear weapons and strengthening of non-proliferation regimes and arms control treaties, including New START, the INF, and the NPT.

It promotes entry into force of the CTBT and efforts to conclude a Fissile Material Cut-Off Treaty (FMCT). It also addresses the threat of nuclear terrorism, gaps in nuclear materials security arrangements, and also the impact of missile defence. A sub-programme focuses on the ways in which European countries can respond effectively to the challenges of the security environment in the Middle East.
