Confrontation or cooperation? Abolition in dangerous times

The danger of nuclear war over North Korea is escalating. Worldwide fears are growing. The world is facing greater challenges than ever, yet at the same time most states are working to consign nuclear weapons to the dustbin of history.

Come to our international conference to discuss the prospects for a new direction on nuclear weapons, and to address the wider international context too: NATO, missile defence, Trump, Korea, China, war and intervention – and what we can do about it all.
