Pugwash Conferences on Science and World Affairs

Pugwash seeks a world free of nuclear weapons and other weapons of mass destruction. Through a long-standing tradition of "dialogue across divides" that earned the Nobel Peace Prize in 1995, Pugwash aims to develop and support the use of scientific, evidence-based policymaking, focusing on areas where nuclear and WMD risks are present. By facilitating track 1.5 and track II dialogues, Pugwash fosters creative discussions on ways to increase the security of all sides and promote policy development that is cooperative and forward-looking.
