Abstract

Arms control or disarmament? The case of the former Yugoslavia Jeffrey D. McCausland1 Efforts to restore peace to the former Yugoslavia were generally divided into two categories - military tasks and civilian tasks. The Implementation Force (IFOR) and subsequent Stabilizing Force (SFOR) were responsible for military operations such as the separation of forces and the creation of a zone of separation. Civil efforts headed by Carl Bildt focused on elections and reconstruction. While this 'division of labor' was useful in separating or- ganization responsibilities, other actions that were required by the Dayton Accords were not easily placed in either category. These included the arrest of war criminals and arms control arrangements. The arms control and confidence building proposals contained in the Dayton Accords were quite ambitious. Under Article II of Annex lA the signatories agreed to commence negotiations on confidence and security building measures within seven days after the treaty entered into force. They also agreed (Article ill) to accept restrictions on the importation of light arms for 90 days and heavier weapons for 180 days, and (under Article IV) to begin negotiations within 30 days to establish reduced levels of armament and military manpower.
