Insights into the evolving ideology of nuclear order in Europe
The "strategic narrative" of nuclear order in Europe emerged as the ideological foundation of the nuclear non-proliferation regime, displacing alternative visions of nuclear politics such as comprehensive disarmament and a supranational European nuclear community. The EU-funded SNNO project is investigating the emergence, projection and contestation of the aforementioned narrative in Europe as well as its role in attempts to develop an image of Europe as a normative power oriented towards human security. The research becomes of critical importance in an era when the prevailing narrative is under pressure both by norm entrepreneurs and technological developments that challenge the sustainability of deterrence.
