UCL's Institute of Global Governance is pleased to present Eric Schlosser, investigative journalist and author, for a special debate about the issues arising from his book Command and Control , which explores nuclear weapons and the risks that their continuing presence put over our daily lives. Schlosser’s compelling narrative tells the story of Cold War ‘near-misses’ using exclusive and recently de-classified documents and interviews.

Eric will be joined by Thomas Nash, an expert on humanitarian disarmament who has worked on international campaigns to ban cluster munitions and autonomous weapons. Thomas is Director of Article 36 and a steering group member of the International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons (ICAN).
