Action Suggestions

By  Uwe Werner Schierhorn


There can be a variety of measures to reduce the risk of nuclear war, e.g:


·         Conferences between nuclear-weapon-owning countries with close time intervals

·         New disarmament agreements going beyond the current INF Treaty

·         de-escalation - broad coalition of reason (e.g. confidence- and security-building measures as in "Cold War No. 1", red telephones, controls, inspections, manoeuvre announcements)

·         New policy of détente according to the principles of foreign policy (e.g. equal rights, understanding other sides, foresightedly preventing conflicts, willingness to reconcile instead of violence & enemy images, recognition of other political cultures & renunciation of regime changes)

·         Creating cooperative security structures with integration and without exclusion of neighbours (e.g. Europe - Russia)

·         Improvement of international understanding (e.g. youth exchange, cultural exchange)
