    New Impulses for Arms Control

    How can we prevent great power competition from escalating into open military conflict? The KSSI in cooperation with the IFSH (Institut für Friedensforschung und Sicherheitspolitik an der Universität Hamburg) developed 19 policy recommendations for the future of strategic stability launched through an interactive website.


    The erosion of arms control regimes, the return of great power competition and fears of a new global arms race – amplified by technological innovations – pose a fundamental challenge to stability and security in the 21st century. While the era of bilateral arms control treaties dating from the Cold War is coming to an end, new actors have emerged that play a significant role in global peace and security. These developments call for a rethinking of traditional concepts of arms control and strategic stability, and require creative approaches for peaceful cooperation between the major powers.

    Over the course of one year, the Körber Strategic Stability Initiative (KSSI) – a cooperation between IFSH and the Körber Foundation – regularly convenes a group of experts from China, Russia, the United States and Europe to develop policy options for current challenges in the areas of Strategic Stability and arms control.
