Abstract

L'histoire des négociations sur le désarmement et la maîtrise des armements depuis 1979 fait apparaître deux phases distinctes, avant et après l'année charnière 1989. Si, pendant la période de confrontation Est-Ouest, on cherchait avant tout à équilibrer le rapport de forces et à stabiliser les rapports de dissuasion entre les États-Unis et l'URSS, la disparition du monde bipohire a obligé les analystes et les praticiens à aborder la question sous un angle inédit. Jean Klein s'attache ici à tirer le bilan de cette évolution, mettant en relief les continuités comme les ruptures dans le processus de négociation. L'idéal d'un désarmement global serait-il toujours aussi ébigné aujourd'hui qu'il y a vingt ans ? Over the past twenty years, disarmament negotiations and arms control have been marked by an alternation of successes and setbacks, and the agreements concluded tended mainly to stabilize the balance of deterrence between the two nuclear protagonists, to reduce conventional forces in the area extending from the Atlantic to the Urals and to regulate, or even ban, chemical weapons and anti-personnel mines. Until the collapse of the bipolar world order, it was mainly a matter of organizing the. strategic status quo and of reducing the risks of surprise attack. Since then some breakthroughs have been achieved with a view to genuine disarmament and some measures have been taken to consolidate the regime of non-proliferation of nuclear weapons. However, the obstacles that have arisen along this road and the paralysis of the multilateral negotiations in Geneva bode ill for the contribution of disarmament to the establishment of a new security order.
