Rethinking nuclear security for a world free of nuclear weapons
The Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists posted this article by Kennette Benedict on November 2, 2020.
The article linked above urges us to think about “human security” and to prioritize democracy and related values. One short paragraph near the beginning says:
“These two approaches—emphasizing human security and democracy—could help shift the frame of reference and provide the basis for a world free of nuclear weapons.”
The article mentions the ways the powerful nuclear nations have used technical methods and traditional kinds of negotiating, and it says those are not enough for what we need now. The article urges an emphasis on “human security” and democracy as the best ways to move forward.
