Two new reports assess the effect of emerging undersea technologies on ballistic missile submarines (SSBNs) and strategic stability. They arise from work led by British Pugwash with BASIC in a close, supporting role.
In response to a high level request for an overview of UK non-governmental work on nuclear disarmament, British Pugwash has produced a directory of the UK-based NGOs and individual experts that have a focus on the non-proliferation and disarmament of nuclear, chemical and biological weapons.
This project aimed to promote European dialogue for progress in the May 2010 NPT Review Conference. It was led by the President of International Pugwash, Amb. Jayantha Dhanapala, who chaired the 1995 Review and Extension Conference of the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT).
In 2007, British Pugwash launched an annual essay competition in honour of Professor Joseph Rotblat. Closing shortly after the general election in May, the 2010 competition asked what advice should be given to the next Government on a science and technology topic of the entrants' choosing.
