The History Project

Pugwash Conferences on Science and International Affairs has a long and distinguished history of bringing together all sides in pursuit of disarmament, elimination of weapons of mass destruction and the promotion of peaceful settlement of international disputes. Pugwash and its most eminent spokesperson, Joseph Rotblat, jointly won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1995 “for their efforts to diminish the part played by nuclear arms in international politics and, in the longer run, to eliminate such arms” (official Nobel Peace Prize website)

British Pugwash, together with the Pugwash History Project is working to conserve publications, documents, photographs and other visual and audio material that map Pugwash’s history and achievements, and to make it publicly available.
