Nuclear weapon ban treaty

In 2016, the UN General Assembly decided by overwhelming majority to initiate negotiations on a treaty banning nuclear weapons in 2017. Negotiations are set to take place 27–31 March and 15 June–7 July 2017 in New York.

The organisational meeting was held on 16 February. Check out our report from the meeting.

We will have more information soon regarding civil society participation. Stay tuned!

In the meantime, please see the International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons (ICAN) for more information about campaign activities and expectations for the negotiations www.nuclearban.org.
