Building Common Security Conference

MAC is pleased to partner with the Group of 78 and other organizations working on peace and disarmament on the Group of 78's annual policy conference here in Ottawa.

Nuclear disarmament ultimately requires a shift from the doctrine of mutually assured destruction (MAD) to a commitment – in mind, policy and practice – to mutual security, through a sustainable common security regime rooted in global interdependence, the rule of law, and a recognition of the limited utility of military force in responding to political conflict. Common security is built on UN Charter principles and on mutual security arrangements, rather than competitive military alliances, and focuses on war prevention and the peaceful resolution of disputes.

On September 22 and 23, join us for GETTING TO NUCLEAR ZERO: BUILDING COMMON SECURITY FOR A POST-MAD WORLD in order to talk about how humanitarian disarmament can help build common security.
