A conference to consider and examine nuclear energy both in peacetime and during moments of armed conflict, will be held on October 12 – 13, 2017 at the Canadian Museum for Human Rights in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada.

The conference is titled:

Human Dimensions and Perspectives in a Nuclear World: Legal Issues of Non-Proliferation, Disarmament and the Right To Nuclear Energy.

“Nuclear weapons are deemed the most dangerous weapons on earth today. One device could destroy an entire city or region, potentially killing millions of people, causing devastating effects for survivors and leaving long-term consequences on the natural environment,” says Jonathan Black-Branch, a global security and non-poliferation expert.   

Branch is just one of the many featured speakers at the conference, and believes the two-day event is essential for moving beyond past ideals about nuclear energy and devices.    

“More than 2,000 nuclear tests have been conducted to date and some 22,000 devices exist today,” he says. “The development of nuclear technology has transformed the world posing overwhelming challenges regarding international peace and security and arguably is the greatest threat to human security.”

The conference also features world renowned peace advocates, educators, law professionals and political leaders. Read Original Article
