Acronym’s UN working paper on Deterrence

Security And Humanitarian Implications Cover

This working paper on “Security and humanitarian implications of relying on nuclear weapons for deterrence, and effective legal alternatives” was written by Rebecca Johnson and published by the United Nations Open-Ended Working Group on taking forward multilateral negotiations in 2016.  It addresses problems in traditional realist assumptions about nuclear weapons and deterrence and discusses how deterrence can be a more effective contributor to national defence and international security without nuclear weapons.
