Conversion Survey, 1997: Global Disarmament and Disposal of Surplus Weapons

By Herbert Wulf; Bonn International Center for Conversion | Go to book overview
Other observers will have their own list of 'best' or 'worst' outcomes. What is important is that the next years are not wasted or squandered because the generation and disposal of surplus are not given serious consideration. The near future is likely to see new surplus emerging in large quantities, unless the present trends of military downsizing and disarmament are completely reversed. Present efforts to institutionalize disposal of surplus are a prerequisite to reaping political, economic, ecological and technical benefits from disarmament and a chance to change from discomfort over surplus as a negative by- product of disarmament to relief over the elimination of large amounts of the implements of war.
