Between Nuclear Power, Politics and Humanity

Nuclear proliferation in the last century has created an armament race between nations involved in regional and global conflicts.

While the race between the USA and the USSR was motivated by the Cold War, many other countries developed nuclear armaments as a deterrent from attacks from neighbouring countries.

While the Cold War has ceased, many regional conflicts and tensions have not, causing concerns which of these countries could be the first to deploy nuclear weapons. This could cause a chain reaction that could easily create the most devastating war, spreading from a regional to a continental and maybe global scale.

Attention on the issue has raised again due to the ongoing tensions between the North Korean regime and nearby countries, but we should not forget the danger of a nuclear conflict could be even more immediate in other parts of the world, for example through the rift of Pakistan and India over Kashmir or the tensions between Iran and Israel.

What can the EU do to deter the use of nuclear weapons? A great promoter of nuclear disarmament, how can the EU policy agenda, in foreign relations but not only, lead to minimise the danger of a nuclear conflict?
