It is widely accepted today that the use of nuclear weapons would generally be contrary to international law. Yet, for a long time, there was no rule in international law that explicitly, unequivocally and comprehensively prohibited the use of nuclear weapons. This crucial legal gap was filled on 7 July 2017 when 122 non-nuclear states voted to adopt the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons, the first legally binding universal treaty to prohibit the development, production, possession, and use or threat of use of nuclear weapons.
Please join our panelists to explore prospects and challenges for achieving a nuclear weapons free world:
