Stop Trident Renewal

A major new research paper examining the economic, political and social costs of renewing the Trident nuclear missile system for Scotland by Professor Mike Danson, Karen Gilmore and Dr Geoff Whittam.  The authors make three sets of arguments against Trident’s renewal: i) the moral and philosophical case against renewal; ii) the economic case for non-renewal; and iii) the defence case for non-renewal.

The report also examines the impact of non-renewal in economic, social and military terms, specifically looking at the impact of job loss as a result of non-renewal and assesses the case for diversification in terms of skill redeployment and benefits.
