Bishop William Kenney, a long-term critic of nuclear weaponry and a keen advocate for justice and peace, speaks to us about a new document from the International Affairs department of the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of England and Wales that presents a Catholic approach to arms control and disarmament.

Bishop Kenney, an Auxiliary Bishop Emeritus of Birmingham, talks about:

  • The need for an ethical approach to emerging technology – including weaponised drones and lethal autonomous weapons systems
  • International cooperation and treaties
