Arms Proliferation: Threats and Responses

New Media  | 10 de marzo de 2011  | Vistas: 78

The evolutionary history of war has influenced enormously the way that countries interact and defend themselves presently. Bellicose technology has constantly evolved into much more sophisticated methods and techniques, which have led to greater controls over these types of weapons. Marc Finaud refers to this topic by explaining the biggest threats to international security regarding weapons of mass destruction. He explains the different kinds of weapons existing and how they have produced a new world order. He also describes the main responses the international community has had towards these types of menaces to peace and security amongst them, demonstrating how diverse treaties and agreements have regulated their use and prevented worldwide catastrophes.
