Middle East

Why is it
important?

In a region defined by conflict, political repression, and competition over global energy reserves, the proliferation of nuclear weapons is incendiary.

Stability and peace need to be established throughout the region so that Israel becomes willing to dismantle its nuclear weapons, and the threat of new nuclear programs is eliminated.

What needs to
be done?

Military and confidence-building measures need to be taken to reassure states.

Regional actors need to be persuaded that nuclear weapons do not improve security or global standing.

Influential individuals and leaders need to show support for cooperative dialogue.

Who is working on it?
