Dr Rebecca Johnson FRSA founded the Acronym Institute for Disarmament Diplomacy in 1996 after working as an activist and then analyst on the Comprehensive Test Ban Treaty (CTBT) negotiations.

Rebecca’s work for the Acronym Institute prioritises nuclear disarmament and security, in which she has particular expertise relating to nuclear technologies, treaties such as the CTBT and the Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT), and verification. But she combines this with voluntary organising for justice and peace in every area of her life.

As well as her PhD in multilateralism from LSE, Rebecca holds a B.Sc. from Bristol University and an MA from London University’s School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS).
