British Pugwash projects

British Pugwash runs specific projects which seek to engage with government and the scientific community on policy issues.

Current projects include research on the ethics of armed robotic systems, the potential impact of emerging technologies on nuclear-armed submarines, the risks of climate change to military infrastructure, continued work on future energy options and new work on arms control options relating to developments with hypersonic cruise missiles.

Recent projects include the WMD Awareness public education campaign and efforts to establish a British Disarmament Institute.

British Pugwash also supports an education programme which brings together younger people (aged 5 to 19) with inspirational Nobel Peace Laureates – PeaceJam UK!
