Arms Control NOW

By Farrah Zughni

Arms Control Today, ACA's monthly magazine, goes beyond the news headlines to identify policy problems with and solutions to risks posed by the world's most dangerous weapons.

Check out the three most popular news articles from our December issue:

  • Oliver Meier's piece on NATO's revised nuclear policy sheds light on just how different NATO members think about the alliance's nuclear weapons and on the back-room negotiations that produced the new Strategic Concept at its recent Lisbon summit.
  • During a November 12 visit to North Korea's Yongbyon facility, U.S. experts said they were caught off guard by the level of sophistication of the country's pilot uranium-enrichment plant. Peter Crail gives context to the discovery while emphasizing important contrasts and similarities between North Korea's nuclear program and Iran's.
  • Despite President Barack Obama's pledge (echoed this week by France and Germany) to support Indian inclusion in the Nuclear Suppliers Group, Daniel Horner reports that India's membership is unlikely to materialize any time soon.
