British Nuclear Weapons: Culture, Change and Strategy

British Nuclear Weapons: Culture, Change and Strategy

The Global Insecurities Centre at the University of Bristol hosted a workshop exploring the current arguments for and against the retention of British nuclear weapons. 

The one-day workshop, which was organised in association with the University of Birmingham and King’s College London, was the fifth in a series of seven ESRC-funded events on Reconnecting the academic community to British defence and security policy: the 2015 Strategic Defence and Security Review (ES/L001616/1).

The workshop was organised into three panels addressing:

  • British Interest, Identity and Nuclear Weapons

  • Old Concepts, New Threats?

  • British Nuclear Policy
