Europe is the only region that has created an integrated conventional arms control architecture (see box 10.1). However, the deep-rooted and growing geopolitical divisions between the Russian Federation and most of the rest of Europe over the past two decades has resulted in this architecture being eroded to the point of collapse or irrelevance—part of a wider crisis in arms control.1 The effect of previously agreed operational constraints and limitations on conventional force structures has also been diminished by the broader trend of rapid technological modernization.2 Moreover, as the Russia–Ukraine crisis deepened at the end of 2021, the pillars of the arms control architecture were suffering from a spate of major violations, suspensions and withdrawals.
