SCRAP is a holistic approach to global disarmament proposing the adoption of an international legally binding agreement for complete and general disarmament. Its concept is designed to expand the idea of what is possible in disarmament by drawing on the best practice of past agreements.

SCRAP comes from the initiative of students, alumni and staff of SOAS, University of London, and is actively supported by a committee of academics and NGO officials with governmental experience.
