This report 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.
