Assuring Destruction Forever - Reaching Critical Will

Reaching Critical Will are a partner organisation of the International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons and they have just released an updated study exploring the ongoing and planned nuclear weapon modernisation programmes in China, the Democratic People's Republic of Korea, France, India, Israel, Pakistan, Russian Federation, the United Kingdom, and the United States.

Our vice-chair Janet Fenton wrote the UK Chapter for this report which you can read through this link.

As of early 2020, the nuclear-armed states are estimated to possess approximately 13,410 nuclear weapons, most of which are many times more powerful than the nuclear weapon dropped on Hiroshima. All the nuclear-armed states have plans to modernise—upgrade and/or extend the lives of—their nuclear weapons. 

This report is an update of a study that Reaching Critical Will initiated in 2012.  Each chapter of the Assuring destruction forever: 2020 edition has been prepared by experts on national nuclear weapon programmes. Each goes through the current status of nuclear weapon forces; modernisation programmes and plans; the costs of these programmes; the countries’ positions on international nuclear weapon law and policy; and public discourse related to nuclear weapons. You can read the full report through this link.
