Deterrence and defence policies are at the core of Britain's Trident replacement policy debates. The strategic foreign policy implications of the replacement debate for Britain also require closer consideration. These were some of the conclusions of an IISS discussion meeting at Arundel House on 'The foreign-policy implications of the Trident replacement debate' on 13 March.
The launch of Dr Nick Ritchie's book A Nuclear Weapons Free World? Britain, Trident and the Challenges Ahead (Palgrave, 2012) addressed the question: Why is the UK still committed to nuclear weapons, what are the prospects for a change in UK policy, and what does the UK process tell about the prospects for disarmament?
