Abstract: As NATO is currently undergoing the Defence and Deterrence Posture Review, IKV Pax Christi would like to contribute to the discussion on the future of U.S. nuclear weapons deployed in Europe. This report, elaborates on the reality that a large proportion of the Alliance does not explicitly favour the continued deployment of U.S. nuclear bombs in Europe. As illustrated in the Withdrawal Issues report of last year, IKV Pax Christi has found that a majority of NATO alliance members would prefer to see the weapons removed from Europe, albeit under varying conditions. This new report reflects the fact that there is no consensus on keeping the weapons in Europe and reframes the debate with that in mind. Instead of defaulting to something that does not have agreement, the report suggests the Alliance and the national democratic institutions that comprise it, ensure that the Chicago Summit recognizes that a new consensus is emerging, one that requires a change in current nuclear deployments.
