Banning the Bomb with Beatrice Fihn
Our latest episode of The Global Cable features our Distinguished Visiting Fellow Beatrice Fihn. Fihn leads the International Campaign to Ban Nuclear Weapons (ICAN). In 2017, she received the Nobel Peace Prize on behalf of ICAN, recognizing its work towards the UN Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons. Fihn talks about whether it's more naive to work for a ban on nuclear weapons or live in a world with thousands of them; why governments don't always want the public to engage with national security issues; and how we've so far avoided a nuclear war not by good judgment, but by dumb luck.
