The changing political and security context in the Middle East and internationally requires a fresh look at existing positions of states in the region on the Middle East weapons of mass destruction-free zone (ME WMDFZ).

In this publication, experts from eight Middle Eastern states discuss the positions and potential incentives, as well as dis- and missing incentives for their country’s engagement with the ME WMDFZ.

By identifying and collating the incentives of different states in the region, this publication aims to promote better understanding of regional states’ security dilemmas and specific concerns related to the WMDFZ; to identify points of convergence that can be built upon and points of divergence that need to be bridged; to facilitate exchange and dialogue among regional experts; and to expand regional capacity.
