Thirteen years ago, the United Nations declared 29 August as the International Day Against Nuclear Tests.
In honour of the occasion, the latest episode of The Constitution@Work – the new podcast series by the FW de Klerk Foundation – features Foundation Chairman Dave Steward in conversation with Jonathan Granoff on the current threat of nuclear weapons, particularly against the backdrop of the war in Ukraine and the latest developments in East Asia.
Jonathan is the President of the Global Security Institute in New York. He is also the UN Representative of the World Summit of Nobel Peace Laureates, where he worked with Dave for over a decade. He has spent his career fighting against nuclear weapons and for the destruction of this threat to mankind.
You might ask what nuclear weapons have to do with the South African Constitution. The reality is, if things go wrong in this arena, our fundamental human rights will be rendered meaningless.
