Example text

When the Cold War finally drew to a close and the Soviet Union disintegrated in 1991 many thought the time had come for a radical rethink of the purpose of nuclear weapons at the very highest levels of US government. 2 This did not happen and a significant opportunity was missed in the very early 1990s for major progress towards nuclear disarmament. Instead, new roles were assigned to nuclear forces even as stockpiles were steadily reduced from their Cold War highs. 3 In the mid-1990s a further attempt was made to galvanise the world’s nuclear powers to take the goal of nuclear disarmament seriously.

Instead, new roles were assigned to nuclear forces even as stockpiles were steadily reduced from their Cold War highs. 3 In the mid-1990s a further attempt was made to galvanise the world’s nuclear powers to take the goal of nuclear disarmament seriously. 5 This ‘new abolitionist’ movement coincided with the Canberra Commission on the Elimination of Nuclear Weapons convened by Australian Prime Minister Paul Keating in 1995, the 1996 Advisory Opinion from the International Court of Justice on the illegality of the use of nuclear weapons, the 1999 Tokyo Forum for Nuclear Non-Proliferation and Disarmament established by Japanese Prime Minister Ryutaro Hashimoto, and sustained pressure to build an international consensus for progress on nuclear disarmament by the New Agenda Coalition of Brazil, Egypt, Ireland, Mexico, New Zealand, South Africa, and Sweden.

The SNP and the majority of Scottish MPs remain committed to a nuclear weapon-free Scotland. On 14 June 2007 the Scottish Parliament voted overwhelmingly against the British Government’s decision to replace Trident by a vote of 71 to 16 with 39 abstentions. 45 The Scottish Parliament currently has no say in national defence matters, a subject that was ‘reserved’ in the devolution settlement set out in the 1998 Scotland Act. 46 Alex Salmond’s SNP comfortably won a second term in 2011 in a historic victory and announced their intention to hold a referendum on Scottish independence.
