Symposium: Global security through nuclear weapons?

Wednesday 17 October 2018, 2.00pm–4.30pm

Earlier this year the doomsday clock was moved to two minutes to midnight, the same as it was at the height of the Cold War in 1953. Nuclear proliferation, rogues states and terrorists, and reckless rhetoric have brought nuclear weapons back into the headlines. At the same time, 122 nations voted at the UN General Assembly for a treaty to prohibit nuclear weapons. Is this a pipedream? Have nuclear weapons actually helped to maintain international security? Or are we closer than ever to nuclear catastrophe?

Join our expert panellists as they examine the current situation and provide an outlook. Presented in conjunction with the exhibition Black Mist Burnt Country.

All ages, free
