The UK government announced that it would be increasing the maximum number of nuclear warheads kept in its stockpile. This surprising announcement follows nearly three decades of nuclear reductions and disarmament advocacy by the UK, and could see the total number of nuclear weapons rise from approximately 225 up to 260 in the years ahead.

The decision to increase the cap represents a marked and abrupt shift from previous commitments and raises many questions both domestically and for the international community.

Join us for an important discussion on this issue.

Speakers:

Dr Rishi Paul – Senior Nuclear Policy Analyst at BASIC

More speakers tbc shortly.
