The nuclear weapon ban treaty: a resource guide for WILPF
Reaching Critical Will is pleased to have published a new resource guide for the WILPF network about the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons.
In 2017, history was made with the adoption of the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons. The successful adoption of the agreement by the majority of the world’s countries is a significant shift in the global discourse on nuclear weapons and a major challenge to arguments about the necessity of these weapons for security. WILPF staff, sections, and members have been active and vocal supporters of the ban for over a decade, following on consistent antinuclear organising and advocacy since the dawn of the nuclear age.
This resource guide is meant to help us carry on with that work, through working with governments and others in civil society to ensure the Treaty’s rapid entry-into-force and effective implementation. It provides an overview of what the Treaty includes, examples of past work, suggestions for future action, and where to find further information.
