The End of the INF Treaty: What is coming next?

Special Issue Call for Papers

On February 2, 2019, the Trump administration announced its intention to withdraw from the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces (INF) Treaty. In response, the Russian Federation also declared that it would suspend its treaty obligations. The treaty is expected to come to a formal end in August. The loss of the agreement, which had remained in force between the two countries for three decades, constitutes a major setback in global arms control. With the end of the treaty in sight, observers have started thinking about ways to fill the void of arms control in this category of nuclear weapons. In this special feature, J-PAND editors wish to call for papers related to the topics and questions that may include but are not limited to the following:

  • Why are the United States and Russia throwing out the treaty?
  • What role can European countries play in hammering out an alternative agreement to control intermediate-range nuclear weapons?
  • How does the “China factor” play into this process?
  • How is the issue of missile defense related to this problem?
