Nukes, trumpets and the “ultimate goal”—United Nations Youth Champions fireside chat with Dr. Randy Rydell

It is not every day that one gets to talk to a retired Senior Political Affairs Officer at the United Nations who is also the main trumpet in the United Nations Symphony Orchestra! Therefore, we Youth Champions for Disarmament were looking forward to the fireside chat with Dr. Randy Rydell. Having spent his professional life engaged in disarmament affairs in academia, think tanks, and Government institutions, he was able to provide diverse perspectives and introduce us to some terminological pitfalls young people could find in the field of disarmament. For example, disarmament, meaning the elimination of agreed classes of weapons, is not the same as arms control, which denotes the regulation of armament in terms of numbers, range, lethality etc.
