Abstract

The end of the Cold War had significantly decreased the threat of large scale nuclear war. However, the emergences of new non-state actors have seriously challenged nonproliferation and arms control regime. Arms control and nonproliferation efforts in general during the Cold War successfully prevented nuclear war. In addition although many believe that nonproliferation and strategic arms control regime will fail to prevent the expansion of nuclear states current reality seems to oppose these thoughts. However, process of globalization and destruction of Cold War stability have created environment where the shortfalls of the nonproliferation regime seriously threaten its existence. Inconsistent policies by permanent nuclear powers, like the case of “Indian exception“ have proved to be dangerous example. Using this as an excuse some states like North Korea and Iran have either abandon the nonproliferation regime (i.e. NPT) or have begun unilateral interpretation of its provisions. Fragility of the nonproliferation regime in the post Cold War era should be also considered in the context of small states interest and the treats by modern terrorism. Therefore the article will first examine the effects of globalization on nonproliferation and arms control regime. Then it will briefly address the effects from unilateralism in the context of nonproliferation and arms control regime. The article will also look in to possibility of Macedonia to become nuclear power and the consequences of such an attempt in the context of modern terrorism.
