On September 16, 2021, Australia, United Kingdom, and the United States signed an agreement on a new defense alliance called AUKUS (Australia-UK-US), triggering a wide response from the international community. One of the matters of concern is that the agreement might undermine the nuclear nonproliferation regime as the US and the UK have committed to support Australian aspirations to equip Royal Australian Navy with nuclear-powered submarines [1]. This may have a negative impact on the nuclear-weapon-free zone in the Pacific Ocean (envisaged by the Rarotonga Treaty) as well as on the IAEA safeguards system [2]. However, not only did the new security pact between the three Anglo-Saxon states cast a shadow on the nonproliferation regime but also undermined many years of talks about gender perspectives on nuclear nonproliferation.
