Geneva Dialogues: Disarmament for future generations

'Disarmament for the future’ is the third in a four-part event in a summer series organized to move forward on the Secretary-General’s Disarmament Agenda Securing our Common Future: An Agenda for Disarmament.

The Geneva Dialogue Series is a forum for exchange between members of the disarmament community—and beyond—on the Secretary-General’s Agenda for Disarmament. The series offers a rare opportunity to engage with broader, cross-cutting issues rather than weapon- or instrument-specific discussions.

This Dialogue will consider:

  • What do the security implications of innovations in Science and Technology mean for the United Nations and the wider community of disarmament practitioners?
  • Are our existing mechanisms, tools and networks adequate to respond to these challenges?
  • What existing resources could be better leveraged to address these challenges? What new relationships will need to be built?

While many new weapon technologies are actively being examined within United Nations disarmament bodies, the pace of technological development and dissemination is challenging governmental regulatory frameworks and multilateral processes. On some issues, multilateral dialogue is entirely absent or defunct. While all existing multilateral efforts should be accelerated, the United Nations can play a central role in promoting greater understanding of implications posed by developments in science and technology, encouraging responsible innovation and offering mediation in response to incidents of transnational cyberattacks.     —   Secretary-General António Guterres
