80 European leaders call on President Trump to preserve the Iran nuclear deal.
On Sunday 10 December the Nobel Peace Prize will be awarded to the International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons (ICAN) for their work on the negotiation of the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons (TPNW). To examine the implications of this treaty for the global nuclear order, the ELN has commissioned a collection of essays, bringing together contributions from a distinguished group of nuclear policy and arms control experts.
This report, co-published by the British American Security Information Council (BASIC) and the European Leadership Network (ELN), argues that President Trump’s policy on nuclear weapons challenges strategic stability, arms control, disarmament and non-proliferation within Europe.
Hans Blix, former IAEA Director General and ELN member, argues that American concerns over Iran’s nuclear weapons intentions may be more of a marketing ploy than a real worry.
ELN Director Adam Thomson and ELN Research Director Lukasz Kulesa argue that while there will be no immediate transatlantic divorce, the US position on the Iran Deal has drawn the EU countries, Russia and China closer together as JCPOA signatories.
Emmanuelle Maitre argues that the Trump administration’s policy shift means that it is now the US which is violating the spirit of the JCPOA. By targeting the motivations of potential investors, it is making the deal much less attractive for Tehran.
The United States should be acting to shore up the cornerstone of European security that is the INF rather than threatening it with a collapse with its response to Russia’s poor behaviour.
On June 1 2017, ELN Director Sir Adam Thomson delivered the keynote speech at the 2017 UK PONI/RUSI conference in London.
On May 8 2017, the ELN and Chatham House co-hosted a research event on "The Asia-Pacific Region and its Role in Nuclear Non-Proliferation and Disarmament Initiatives."
