ABSTRACT

Proliferation Primer: A Majority Report of the Subcommittee on International Security, Proliferation, and Federal Services (U.S. Senate)   [open pdf - 541KB]

The Proliferation Primer compares the Wassenaar Arrangement to its predecessor export control regime, COCOM, assessing whether the elimination of COCOM has given rogue nations and their suppliers increased access to the technology of the West. It also considers the consequences of the Clinton Administration's new policies that limit the controls over the export of dual-use technology, such as supercomputers. The Primer examines the increasing availability of missile hardware and expertise and discusses the difficulties of predicting when and how technological advances will occur.
