Abstract

Since its inception, the Conference on Disarmament (CD) has failed to make any progress towards the vital international security issue of Negative Security Assurances. This paper makes an academic attempt to identify and understand the reasons behind the lack of progress, despite the fact that most states, both in possession or without possessing nuclear weapons, continue to diplomatically support Negative Security Assurances. In addition, the prospects of Negative Security Assurances in the South Asian region have also been briefly evaluated in this paper.

Keywords: nuclear, negative security assurances, Conference on Disarmament, South Asia.
