Realising Global Disarmament


The SCRAP Proposal

The Strategic Concept for the Removal of Arms and Proliferation (SCRAP) proposal is a holistic approach to global disarmament proposing the adoption of an international legally binding agreement for complete and general disarmament.


At SCRAP, we constantly develop new research projects on disarmament as it relates to globalisation and the existing development agenda. The high ambition and sense of urgency of our proposals, and our ability to make the link with other agendas like development and conflict, brings new hope of mobilizing governmental, non-governmental, economic, expert and popular forces in support of the same outcomes.

"I like the idea of SCRAP, I like the idea of meeting our security needs...with Arms Control and Disarmament Agreements, that limit destabilizing innovations, to eventually get us to much reductions as possible"
Ambassador Robert Gallucci
"We can develop this Strategic Concept into a truly global resource. The SCRAP Treaty exists to reassure and empower those alarmed at the current turn of world events, to aspire for and work towards a safer world"
Ambassador Abdul Minty
"The SCRAP Treaty is a template to use Disarmament and Arms Control to save lives, uphold international law, and to allow development and human security to flourish."
Winnie Byanyima
Former Executive Director OXFAM
