Ending the global security threats of nuclear power: Lessons from the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons
27 January 2021 | Online
Through considerable organising by civil society, the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons (TPNW) comes into force on January 22. The effort involved challenging existing claims about the value of nuclear weapons, creating a new narrative centred on human security, building new alliances between civil society and governments, and using international law and institutions to drive change.
The webinar will discuss if these approaches help tackle the strong but subtle link between nuclear power and nuclear weapons, halt emerging programs to build so-called small modular nuclear reactors, and end the reckless pursuit of nuclear energy programs worldwide.
