Nuclear Weapons Symposium March 19th

Nuclear Weapons – (Il)legality, Consequences, and Prospects for Disarmament
Nuclear Disarmament Symposium. Speakers & Q&A.
G.03. 50 George Square, Univ of Edinburgh EH8 9JU. 5 – 6pm Refreshments, Quiz, video. 6 – 8pm speakers.

Is it possible to use or threaten to use nuclear weapons in accordance with international law? If nuclear weapons were used again, what would be the consequences? Would a humanitarian response be possible? How do nuclear weapons impact women differently and how are gendered dimensions taken into account in nuclear disarmament?

These concerns will be addressed on Mach 19, when we will discuss the legality and impact of nuclear weapons from various perspectives.
