Abstract

Major changes in the international situation since the signing of the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons (NPT) in 1968, and even since the last quinquennial review conference on the treaty in 1990, make the next such conference in 1995 an occasion of particular interest. In addition, this conference must decide on the further duration of the treaty. John Simpson examines the development of the non-proliferation context and concludes that its slow evolution over the years after 1968 has given way to a succession of revolutionary rather than evolutionary changes during the past three years. New proliferation risks, and new challenges to the international consensus underpinning the non-proliferation regime, are identified and discussed. It is argued that, given this context, the 1995 conference could be a watershed for the regime.
