Book Event: A World Free from Nuclear Weapons The Vatican Conference on Disarmament
December 16, 2020
10:00 a.m. - 11:30 a.m. EST
Location: Online Zoom Webinar
In November 2017, Pope Francis denounced nuclear deterrence as morally unacceptable for the first time. He made this historic pronouncement during the Dicastery for Promoting Integral Human Development's international symposium on “Prospects for a World Free of Nuclear Weapons and for Integral Disarmament," in 2017. This event continues the discussion begun at the symposium and draws on the book A World Free from Nuclear Weapons, published by Georgetown University Press in August 2020 coinciding with the seventy-fifth anniversary of Hiroshima and Nagasaki.
