SCRAP is a holistic approach to global disarmament that proposes adopting an international legally binding agreement for general and complete disarmament. It draws on best practices of past agreements to expand the idea of what is possible in disarmament.

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.
