Abstract : As part of a study entitled Framework Concepts and Analysis for Conventional arms Control for the Under Secretary of Defense for Policy, RAND has been examining questions and options relating to the possible future inclusion of general-purpose naval forces in East-West negotiations. The study has been conducted within the RAND Strategy Assessment Center, which is part of RAND's National Defense Research Institute, a federally funded research and development center supported by the Office of the Secretary of Defense and the Joint Chiefs of Staff. This Note focuses on naval confidence-building in the East-West context. It examines present approaches and future options within and beyond confidence-building measures in the naval sphere. The aim is to be clearer about the kinds of choices the Soviet Union and the United States will face in the coming years.
