On 20 August 1990, delegates will assemble in Geneva for the fourth Review Conference of the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons (NPT). In the five years since the third Review Conference, there has been no case of overt nuclear proliferation, and fears regarding the intentions of at least three states (Argentina, Brazil and South Africa) have abated. At the same time, the context in which the Treaty operates has been subject to considerable change: the nuclear-energy industry is in recession; the superpowers have signed the Intermediate-range Nuclear Forces (INF) Treaty and are near a Strategic Arms Reduction (START) agreement; nuclear submarines and ballistic missiles have been transferred to non-nuclear-weapon states (NNWS); and additional countries, such as North Korea, have become the focus of concern regarding proliferation. The 1990 Review Conference will thus have both new issues to discuss and old ones to reconsider.
