Reflections and recommendations: The future of non-proliferation and disarmament

Shata Shetty, ELN Deputy Director and Denitsa Raynova, ELN Policy Fellow highlight that in the current deteriorating security environment there should be no complacency over the health and future of the NPT. The case must be re-made for the security benefits of this vital treaty. The current situation can be turned into an opportunity to revisit old assumptions, re-assess priorities and consider modest, but practical arrangements which can serve as bridge-builders between polarised communities.
