AMC for Nuclear Disarmament

In an increasingly uncertain world, the risk of nuclear weapons being used is greater than it has been for a long time. The Alva Myrdal Centre for Nuclear Disarmament (AMC) was established in 2021 at Uppsala University, Sweden, to provide teaching, research, and policy support on nuclear disarmament.
