Walka o rozbrojenie a pracownicy nauki
The author begins with quoting the OUN definition of general disarmament, and with defining a number of political and military factors which after the Second World War are likely to contribute to the success of the struggle for disarmament, in spite of the previous modest achievements in this respect. Then the author names and exemplifies three forms of research workers' activities in support of disarmament: 1) Conducting research on various aspects of the armament race and disarmament, of peace and the processes of international cooperation, and various aspects of scholars' activities as exports. 2) Popularization of the idea of disarmament and of necessity of lasting peace — through didactic activities, publications, lectures, organizing conferences, etc. 3) Participation in and realization of struggle for disarmament Programms , in the course of social and political action as well as parliamentary and government action, both nation- and worldwide. The author ascribes a special role to the World Federation of Scientific Workers, whose coming into existence was a reaction to the development of nuclear weapons. He expresses the opinion that the role of research workers and their organization should consist of: a) supporting — with their authority and with social and political action — the activities of the respective governments undertaking to solve various disarmament problems; b) organizing formal and informal pressure groups with regard to the governments opposing disarmament activities; c) fighting — both nationwide and worldwide — obstacles preventing disarmament; d) mobilizing the public opinion for the struggle for disarmament and lasting peace; e) contributing to the détente processes in international relations, and to the development of international cooperation and to the creation of sound foundations of the world peace.
