Striving for military stability in Europe; negotiation, implementation, and adaptation of the CFE treaty.


Striving for military stability in Europe; negotiation, implementation, and adaptation of the CFE treaty.

Sharp, Jane M. O.



292 pages




Sharp (defense studies, Kings College London) analyzes the Conventional Armed Forces in Europe (CFE) Treaty in light of the changing relationship between Russia and NATO. She notes that the CFE, as do other treaties, reflects the current situation rather than affecting it. For example, the Warsaw Treaty Organizations states, with the exception of Russia, opted to join NATO on the collapse of the Society Union. This, to Russia, rendered the CFE nearly moot, while to the West the CFE is still the cornerstone of post-Cold War relations just as it was in the Cold War. She describes the actions of states during CFE negotiation, resolving the discrepancies in Soviet data in the early 1990s and the collapse of the USSR, implementation and non-compliance, and the need for revisions to reflect the era after the Cold War, followed by commentary on the state of the adapted treaty under Putin.
