A Risk to be Managed

Finding common ground for global security from weapons of mass destruction isn’t as easy as one might think. In New Perspectives in Regimes to Control WMD, Michael Moodie discusses how international conventions have become dysfunctional, and how preventing prohibited behaviors in this realm necessarily involves taking into account corporate, criminal, government and NGO networks, any one of which might be engaged in a violent agenda.

Now that weapons of mass destruction are what Moodie calls a permanent reality, it would seem imperative that the latter two of these global networks pool their efforts to prevent the former two (or three) from combining theirs. Unfortunately, there is already no time lag available in this critical human endeavor.

WMD, like globalization, is now “a risk to be managed”.
