SCND responds to the UK Integrated Review of Security, Defence, Development and Foreign Policy

On Friday 11 September, 2020, SCND responded to the UK Government's call for evidence for its Integrated Review of Security, Defence, Development and Foreign Policy, reminding the government that the majority of its citizens believe, like us, that nuclear weapons make the world a more dangerous place, and calling for urgent action on nuclear disarmament.

Our response addresses the clear links between climate change and nuclear warfare - the two greatest existential threats that humanity faces today - and encourages the UK government to seize the initiative and redirect skills and funding from the nuclear industry towards green jobs and renewable energy, to move the UK rapidly towards a safe, peaceful and carbon-neutral future. We call on the UK to reorient its defence policy away from nuclear weapons and the arms trade, and towards conflict resolution and international cooperation, in good faith, to build a nuclear-free world.
