Abstract : It is difficult, in 1997, to conceive of European conventional arms control as a major issue. After all, the Cold War is over. But it remains important for the 30 signatories of the Conventional Forces in Europe (CFE) Treaty and the former warring parties in Bosnia. For the CFE parties, the treaty has come to be seen as the baseline for European stability and a bellwether for the health of European international relations. For the Balkan contestants, conventional arms control contributed directly to whatever stability they enjoy under the Dayton Agreement. Seven years after the conclusion of the Cold War, Europe remains engaged in conventional arms control.
