Hiroshima for Global Peace

HOPe Public EventInternational Security and Nuclear Weapons in the Flux of Global Security Dynamics

International Security and Nuclear Weapons
in the Flux of Global Security Dynamics

Join us to explore the current global security dynamics and examine the role of nuclear weapons from various regional perspectives. The landscape of global security is undergoing significant transformation. Amid the multi-polarized and devided world, disruptions affect regional securities which in turn have global implications and add complexity to global
security. In response to various security concerns, nuclear-armed states and their allies increase reliance on nuclear

In this event, security experts from the Asia-Pacific, Euro-Atlantic, Indo-Pacific, and Middle East will participate in panel discussions. They will share insights on the complexity and interactivity of regional security and the influence of nuclear weapons on both regional and global scales. The discussions will also cover the impact of Hiroshima, Nagasaki, and Japan on international politics and security.


*This event is organized in collaboration with the Royal United Services Institute for Defense and Security Studies (RUSI), as part of the project “Envisioning Global Security Without Reliance on Nuclear Deterrence,” commissioned by the Hiroshima Organization for Global Peace.
