Scope and content
SZ's connection with the Pugwash movement began after his appointment as Chief Scientific Adviser to the Ministry of Defence. Until his retirement from government service in 1970, his activities were constrained but thereafter, and particularly from the late 1970s, he became more closely involved, notably in the series of Workshops on Nuclear Forces.

The Pugwash Conferences on Science and World Affairs, and the symposia, workshops and other meetings that they have spawned, are major channels of communication on issues relating to peace and world security. For details of their origin and aims see two publications by the founding Secretary-General, Professor Joseph Rotblat, History of the Pugwash Conferences, Taylor and Francis, 1962, and Pugwash. A History of the Conferences on Science and World Affairs, Czechoslovak Academy of Sciences, 1967, copies of both of which are in that part of SZ's personal library bequeathed to UEA in 1993 and now joined with his Archive.

File SZ/CSA/174 is complementary to this series.
