U.S. Engagement in the Humanitarian Consequences of Nuclear Weapons Debate [PASCC Research in Progress]   [open pdf - 363KB]

"Objective: This research project seeks to encourage more extensive public understanding of and more effective U.S. engagement in debates about the humanitarian consequences of the use of nuclear weapons. There is a vibrant international debate about whether the use of a nuclear weapon could ever be legal under international humanitarian law as well as how to mitigate the environmental effects of nuclear weapons production and use. However, the U.S. public is largely unaware of this international debate. Thus, this project will investigate the humanitarian consequences of nuclear weapons in order to improve the engagement and interactions of the U.S. public and the government with international organizations and movements concerned with the humanitarian consequences of nuclear weapons."
