The Third Nuclear Age

The Project

Towards a Third Nuclear Age: Strategic Conventional Weapons and the Next Revolution in the Global Nuclear Order (NUCLEARREV).

This project is the first ever systematic study of Strategic Non Nuclear Weapons and associated technologies. The impact of SNNW requires a complete rethink of the global nuclear order, and a paradigmatic shift in nuclear studies. 

This project is funded by the European Research Council.
