A movement has emerged within the global disarmament community that focuses on the 'humanitarian consequences' of nuclear war as a way of re-energizing the disarmament discourse and pressing the nuclear weapons states for more progress.
While it may seem obvious, what do we mean by the ‘humanitarian consequences’ of nuclear war and how might this emphasis revitalize the engagement of US faith communities in the disarmament process? Is it a hindrance or a stimulus to the step-by-step approach of existing conventions and treaties?
Please join faith, science, diplomatic and policy leaders for a day of talking, listening and networking on the challenges and promise of the ‘humanitarian impact’ dialogue, and explore pathways for collaboration between the faith-based and secular advocacy communities.
This event is free, but advanced registration is required for entry to USIP
