Background: 

Dr Sue Wareham first became involved in MAPW over 20 years ago out of a "horror at the destructive capacity of a single nuclear weapon." Sue notes that "millions of innocent people are still threatened by these weapons". Sue believes that her work with MAPW is fundamental to her commitment to the protection of human life and the improvement of human well-being. In 2007 Dr Wareham co-authored a MAPW report on the use of cluster munitions in Lebanon.She has been awarded the Order of Australia Medal for her work for peace.

Australian Capital Territory

Australian Capital Territory members have a particular role to play because Canberra is Australia's national capital.  The ACT Branch has thus been particularly active in raising issues of peace and disarmament with federal politicians and government officials. Branch members are involved several times a year in MAPW and ICANi delegations to government.
