With the support of Young Professionals in Foreign Policy London (YPFP), UK Project on Nuclear Issues (UK PONI) is pleased to announce this roundtable event in the policy context surrounding the UK nuclear deterrent.

It is against the backdrop of our current challenging security environment that the deterrent becomes ever-more a part of the UK’s national security posture. The UK PONI in coordination with YPFP are pleased to announce our roundtable event on the policy and doctrine surrounding the UK Nuclear Deterrent.

This is a fantastic opportunity to expand your network and knowledge within the nuclear field. You will be gaining hands-on experience in a workshop setting. Topics will cover how the UK approaches nuclear deterrence, the ongoing need for it now, and the future of the programme.
