About Us

BASIC is a small but influential think tank with one very large idea: we want a world free from the threat of nuclear weapons. A growing number of politicians, government officials and other decision-makers share our vision. We work constructively with them - and with others who are not yet convinced - to achieve our goals of nuclear disarmament and non-proliferation. We leverage our reputation as a respected, trusted and independent source of information, ideas and perspectives to inform debate and foster creative solutions.

BASIC works on both sides of the Atlantic, and internationally, to encourage sustainable security policies and develop the strategies that can achieve them. We partner with other international NGOs that share our goals and we promote public understanding of the danger of growing nuclear arsenals.

We have charitable status in the United Kingdom and in the United States. We operate with a small but committed staff, an active network of influential board members and advisers, and patrons on both sides of the Atlantic.
