Working with the British American Security Information Council (BASIC), UNA-UK hosted a thought experiment event entitled ‘Surviving Nuclear Zero’ to encourage nuclear experts and students to consider the value states attach to nuclear weapons from a new perspective. The project challenged participants to identify how a post-nuclear UK could protect itself and engage effectively in a world where others still possessed nuclear weapons and where grave threats remained. What would fill the perceived gap in the UK’s national security strategies? What would diplomatic relations with allies and adversaries look like? Would British citizens be safer?
This report from the UNA-UK highlights the lessons drawn from the Surviving Nuclear Zero debates, and makes recommendations for current UK Government action which UNA-UK believes would represent an investment in Britain’s future and in a safer, fairer and more sustainable world.
