The Global Union of Scientists for Peace (GUSP) arose from the ashes of the failed Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) Review Conference in 2005.
The mission of GUSP is fourfold:
- Reduce the heavy reliance on violent means of conflict resolution;
- Prevent the buildup of societal tensions that lead to terrorism and social conflict;
- Research and promote the use of evidence-based, nonviolent approaches to preventing conflict, promoting national security, and achieving global peace.
