The Politics of Nuclear Disarmament – Nuclear Information Service webinar

31st August 2021 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm

Virtual Event Virtual Event

What will eliminating nuclear weapons mean for the domestic politics of nuclear weapon states? How can the nuclear weapons ban treaty be advanced and in what ways can strengthening democracy help achieve nuclear abolition? Who, or what, is preventing us from binning the bomb?

Tim Street’s new book explores what political conditions must be established and what obstacles overcome for China, France, Russia, the UK and US to eliminate their nuclear weapons. The views of a range of actors concerning this issue—including elite perspectives and public opinion—are considered to develop a more democratic approach to disarmament.

Join the Nuclear Information Service to discuss these topics.
