Abstract:

The challenge of the eighties is to determine and implement modifications that will allow the arms control process to reach full effectiveness as a peacekeeping tool. This article briefly discusses what is right and wrong with the current process and then presents three modifications that could be implemented to meet that challenge. The modifications include mission based accounting, confidence-building measures, and a weapons test ban. Pro and con arguments are given for each but the emphasis of the article is on revitalizing the arms control process so that meaningful treaties can be produced in the future.
