Conference on NATO’s Strategic Concept, 1/11/10

We held a One Day Conference on NATO’s New Strategic Concept and Global Zero at the Scottish Parliament on 1 November 2010.

These are the main recommendations arising from the Conference –

1. Nuclear Weapons should be seen as Political Weapons
2. Implications of the Non-Proliferation Review should be taken on
board
3. NATO should promote the attainment of Global Zero
4. NATO should work with the UN on a WMD-free Middle East
5. Strategic doctrine of the 21st century should move from a military to a
humanitarian focus

Here is a full report of the conference (pdf format) –
