Abstract

On the (continuing, residual) relevance of the CFE regime Pál Dunay 1 Introduction Certain news always hits the front page of newspapers. European conventional arms control has seldom figured in this category since the end of the Cold War. It does not mean that it is irrelevant. It means that it has become a regular part of political relations that does function properly. As it is not very visible to the public beyond a narrow circle of experts and has been functioning without any particular reverberations there was little political attention devoted to it. Beyond the objective difficulties in contemplating the importance of the CFE regime for European security there is a methodological problem. Scholarly work on the CFE process 2 has lately been produced by half a dozen analysts in Europe. They have always seen the contribution of arms control generally and CFE specifically as part of European security. The opponents of CFE have been ignorant of the topic lately. Consequently, it is impossible to strike a balance on the basis of public analysis. It is not possible to comment upon the relevance and importance of the CFE process, without asking a much broader question. Is military
