Krupnick, Charles. (1999) “Nuclear Notions in Europe: Prospects for Development of a Nuclear Common Foreign and Security Policy”. In: UNSPECIFIED, Pittsburgh, PA. (Unpublished)
This paper takes stock of nuclear activities and attitudes in Europe to see where we are on the path to a nuclear Common Foreign and Security Policy (CFSP) for the European Union (EU). Along the way, I will address some obvious questions, asked rhetorically in late-1998 by Sergi M. Rogov, director of the USA-Canada Institute in Moscow: “Will the integrated Europe try to rely upon a more autonomous nuclear posture? Will this posture be based on the nuclear forces of Great Britain and France, or will the idea of multinational nuclear forces be possibly revived? Does it mean that Germany in the future will receive access to the nuclear button in one form or another?” Events such as India and Pakistan nuclear tests suggests a more nuclear-inclined world and that European institutions, if not the European pubic, may be further along toward acceptance of a nuclear CFSP than one might think.
