Pugwash seeks a world free of nuclear weapons and other weapons of mass destruction. Through our long-standing tradition of ‘dialogue across divides’ that also earned us the Nobel Peace Prize in 1995, Pugwash aims to develop and support the use of scientific, evidence-based policymaking, focusing on areas where nuclear and WMD risks are present. By facilitating track 1.5 and track II dialogues, we foster creative discussions on ways to increase the security of all sides and promote policy development that is cooperative and forward-looking.
Francesco Calogero is an ex-officio member of the Council, as former Secretary General (1989-1997), Pugwash Conferences on Science and World Affairs. His is Emeritus Professor of Physics at the University of Rome.
