Alyn Ware heads the Basel Peace Office, where he oversees the opposition to nuclear weapons by the Parliamentary Network on Nonproliferation and Disarmament and his new campaign, Move the Nuclear Weapons money.

They consider the possibility of shifting to alternative systems of security, such as OSCE, and the need to change the United Nations.
