The Bomb and Germany

University Duisburg Essen & online
Panel discussion at the University Duisburg Essen with Frank Kuhn

Does Germany need its own nuclear bomb? Can we rely on the USA's nuclear umbrella in case of doubt? Does Europe need its own nuclear umbrella? What is the significance of disarmament policy in these times? Since the Russian invasion of Ukraine, there has been an increasing debate in Europe about nuclear armament and the need for defense policy autonomy. The panel discussion and third event of the lecture series “Living with the Bomb” of the University Duisburg Essen will focus on Germany and bring together experts from academia and civil society. The debate aims to highlight the diversity of opinions on nuclear non-proliferation, deterrence and disarmament.
