Abstract : This paper consists of an assessment of the potential impact of impending demographic constraints on the North Atlantic Treaty Organization's military manpower levels. It also examines what policy measures might be adapted in order to alleviate these future manpower shortages. Finally, it estimates how these demographic constraints might affect Western security interests and East-West relations in the area of conventional arms control.
