The workshop consists of a series of seminars from both RUSI staff and external speakers from the UK Ministry of Defence, the Defence Science and Technology Laboratory (Dstl) and the University of York.

The sessions will include introductions to nuclear deterrence, disarmament, and non-proliferation, as well as the impact of emerging and disruptive technologies on nuclear weapons decision-making.

This workshop is aimed at postgraduate students and early career professionals working in the nuclear technology field who have not yet had significant exposure to nuclear weapons policy issues, including those in academia, government, and industry.
