Join British Pugwash

Membership
Membership is open to everyone in the UK qualified by profession or experience to contribute to the work of Pugwash. Many of our members are scientists, engineers and technologists, including quite a number who are Fellows of the Royal Society, but the participation of other professionals (for example, economists, sociologists and experts on international affairs) in our work is becoming increasingly important. We particularly welcome participation from young scientists concerned about the application of science in world affairs, who can also work with the youth arm of the international organisation, International Student/Young Pugwash.

Our members have a wide range of interests: in nuclear, chemical and biological weapons, in non-proliferation and disarmament, missile technology and the militarisation of space, and terrorism and its prevention, as well as the broader fields of international peace and security. Another continuing theme is the social responsibility of scientists and ethics, including in the biological and medical sciences. There is also an increasing concern with the environment, climate science and energy policy, including nuclear energy.
