NATO Defence Research Fellowship (1987/1988)

Brief Project Description

The research for this report has been conducted under a NATO Research Fellowship that was awarded in April 1986 that enabled the author to visit several NATO capitals and to hold informal off- the record talks with foreign and defence officials. After a brief definition of antiballistic ballistic missiles (ATBMs) and of the concept of strategic stability, the author develops in chapter 3 the historical context for two debates on a European missile defence in 1967-1972 and a second debate since 1983 in the aftermath of President Reagan's SDI project announcement. Chapter 4 analyses the development of the Soviet tactical ballistic missiles systems from 1970-1990, chapter 5 develops a conceptual framework for missile defence in Europe, chapter 6 reviews the political reaction to the proposal for a missile defence in different NATO countries and chapter 7 develops several arms control options for TBMs and ATBMs while chapter 8 offers an evaluation of the different ATBM concepts and Arms control proposals in terms of criteria of strategic stability.
