Launch of the Nuclear Weapons Ban Monitor 2021
The Geneva Centre for Security Policy (GCSP), in partnership with Norwegian People’s Aid, cordially invites you to the launch of the Nuclear Weapons Ban Monitor 2021, followed by a discussion and Q&A.
A light lunch will be offered before the event at 12h30.
The hybrid public discussion will start at 13h00.
The Nuclear Weapons Ban Monitor tracks progress towards a world without nuclear weapons, highlights activities that hamper such progress, and analyses the key challenges to nuclear disarmament.
This is the fourth annual edition of the Nuclear Weapons Ban Monitor. It uses the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons (TPNW) as the primary yardstick against which progress towards the elimination of nuclear weapons is measured, but also tracks the status of all states in relation to all the other relevant multilateral treaties and regimes dealing with nuclear weapons and other weapons of mass destruction.
This event could not be more timely in a tense international context marked, among others, by the resurgence of the threat of use of nuclear weapons, but also by important upcoming events such as the first Meeting of States Parties of the TPNW and the tenth Review Conference of the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons (NPT).
