Careers in Disarmament Studies

Disarmament is the act of reducing, limiting or abolishing weapons. Disarmament generally refers to a country’s military or specific type of weaponry. It is taken to mean total elimination of weapons of mass destruction like nuclear arms. Disarmament can be contrasted with arms control which essentially refers to the act of controlling arms rather than eliminating them. A distinction can be made between disarmament as a process and disarmament as an end state. All countries of the world must have educators for bringing attitudinal and behavioural change for bringing total disarmament in the world.
