Seventy Years of Nuclearism

 
  6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Ruth Buchanan, Matt Craven and Sundhya Pahuja in a conversation chaired by Gerry Simpson.

2019 marks the 70th anniversary of Mutually Assured Destruction. On the 29th August 1949, the United States and the USSR faced each other with weapons capable of ending human life. In fact, the Soviet arsenal alone was capable of killing 22,000 million people. But there were only around 4,000 million to kill. This awful shadow, or what Elaine Scarry called a “vast structure of cruelty”, has been part of our lives since then. 

This instalment of the Cold War International Law project will explore the implications of nuclearism for international law, for planetary survival and for cold wars, old and new.

LSE Law (@lselaw) is an integral part of the School's mission, plays a major role in policy debates and in the education of lawyers and law teachers from around the world.
