The British Pugwash Group is a membership organisation that brings together scientists and others concerned with international affairs and disarmament. There is a particular focus on encouraging engagement of young people, especially young scientists.
It is run on a day-to-day basis by its Executive Committee, which manages projects funded by outside organisations and the ongoing work of the group.
We are pleased to have the support of five Patrons, all of whom are leading figures from the worlds of science and academia.
The British Pugwash Group is occasionally supported by the British Pugwash Trust, a charitable foundation established to support scientists in the UK and beyond involved in Pugwash-type activity. A list of current trustees can be found here.
Our publications include reports of in-depth scientific and policy research, both internally and externally commissioned, as well as public position statements and factual comment to the media.
We also participate with International Pugwash in research on the history of Pugwash and opening its archives to researchers.
We also host a major education programme:
PeaceJam UK works directly with Nobel Peace Laureates through its connection with Joseph Rotblat and the Pugwash Conferences on Science and World Affairs, as joint recipients of the 1995 Nobel Peace Prize.
