Cooperative Security, Arms Control and Disarmament

To promote cooperative security principles and practices, identifying and exploring win-win solutions to international security problems.

Economic, environmental, military and political threats to security are all interconnected and cannot be dealt with satisfactorily at the level of the nation state. It is vital, therefore, to develop effective regional and global responses to national, regional and global challenges.

The Toda Peace Institute’s programme on Cooperative Security, Arms Control and Disarmament therefore:

  • conducts research on the relevance of the principles of common and cooperative security in relation to 21st century threats and
  • organises meetings with defence and security professionals in Asia, Europe and North America to explore the utility of cooperative security approaches to twenty-first century security dilemmas.

The modernisation of nuclear weapons and expansion of arsenals is stimulating a dangerous and costly arms race that heightens nuclear risk and danger. The Toda Peace Institute is working to end nuclear competition and seeking to initiate or restore effective regional and global security mechanisms to facilitate multilateral win-win solutions. In partnership with international peace research institutes around the world, Toda is initiating a series of discussions amongst policy makers and experts on protecting the integrity of the Intermediate Range Nuclear Forces (INF) Treaty in order to deal with new nuclear-tipped cruise missiles and other destabilising technologies.
