No - War Pact as a Device to Avert War

G. Lakshmi [4]

Abstract: The Russia - Ukraine war is presently the most pressing global issue. In view of this long - drawn war, it is pertinent to ponder over the possible means of averting war. War remains possible as long as individual nations seek to ensure self - preservation and promote their individual interests. In the absence of a reliable international body to control (the actions of other countries), nations or governments rely on their own efforts. This paper discusses one such effort, namely the ?no - war pact? or ?non - aggression treaty? which is used as an international diplomatic device to preempt nations from going to war. A brief review of the attempts at ?non - aggression? / ?no - war? done by certain States, from time to time, and to what extent these could maintain peace, is imperative. A no - war pact is not a panacea, yet it offers a stable and secure security framework that can enable two warring/rival nationsto move away from mutual confrontation to accommodation. Furthermore, a no - war pact would develop a more peaceful and constructive relations whereby the poor of rival nations could hope to benefit from the peace dividend. The author opines that (possibly) if war is taken off the table, wars would begin to diminish in the international arena.
