IN THE PRESS: Pax Christi – A world without nuclear weapons

Imagine a world without nuclear weapons: it isn’t hard to do…

In the press this weekend, The Catholic Universe has published an article by Pax Christi Director – Theresa Alessandro.

The Non-Proliferation Treaty has been stuck on Article VI for decades.
Nuclear weapon-possessing governments cite the risk to stability of any
upsetting of a nuclear balance. They point to a reduction in warhead
numbers as their contribution to disarmament. So the UK is down to
120 available warheads; equivalent to ‘only’ 960 Hiroshima-sized
bombs. New ways to be players on the world stage and new ways to
balance international relationships need to be constructed. Such are the
shifting, complex, interconnected sands of wicked problems.  The full article can be Found Here

(With thanks to Martin Birdseye for help with the reasoning around this topic, and to Mati Warwick for the photo of Theresa).
