Developed by 16 Nobel laureates and championed by governments from Africa to Latin America to Asia, this book discusses the Global Arms Treaty as a solution to the problems of societal weaponization that have plagued the state of India since its independence. India continues to be affected by the debilitating impact of armed conflicts—according to global surveys, India is ranked second to Indonesia in the realm of internal wars in Asia. The armed conflicts manifest in the forms of irredentist and separatist wars, caste conflicts, and in several hues of terrorist-orchestrated upheavals, fueled by an illicit arms trade.
