was written for a conference on 'Allies and Arms control'
organised by the Peace Research Institute Frankfurt in December
1986. After a brief introduction it deals with chemical warfare
issues as a challenge for domestic and alliance policy making
processes with a special focus on the legislative battles
and domestic disputes in the Reagan Administration (1981-1986)
and on West German domestic politics. In chapter 3 it discusses
two conflicting arms control approaches: The bargaining chip
vs. the regional approach of the German-German talks on the
non-governmental level. In the conclusions both short-term
problem-solving and subsequent longer-term problems for Alliance
and East-West relations are considered.
