Our Fragile Home - From Human Thread to Humanitarian Treaty

About:
OUR FRAGILE HOME:
PART OF A FESTIVAL OF IDEAS

The Festival of Ideas opens with a fascinating look at how scientists, activists and diplomats brought renewed understanding of the ever present risks and catastrophic consequences of nuclear weapons uses and accidents, leading to multilateral negotiations on a groundbreaking UN Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons. Festival of Ideas Curator, Rebecca Johnson, who was a founding co-chair of the Nobel winning International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons (ICAN), will be in conversation with Ambassador Alexander Kmentt (TBC), who played a key role in organising the Vienna International Conference on Humantiarian Impacts of Nuclear Weapons that set the scene for the UN to hold negotiations in 2016/17, and Dr Patricia Lewis, Research Director, International Security at Chatham House and co-author of the Chatham House Report, Too Close for Comfort: Cases of Near Nuclear Use and Options for Policy.
