In the run-up to the third and last session of the Preparatory Committee for the 2015 NPT Review Conference, to be held from April 28 to May 9, 2014, it is particularly timely to approach the subject of nuclear proliferation from different angles, regionally and globally, at the United Nations in New York. The Palestine-Israel Journal of Politics, Economics and Culture (PIJ), together with FES New York hosted this half-day conference to highlight the need for the abolition of weapons of mass destruction in the Middle East. Invited panelists comprised high-level diplomatic representatives, experts on the nuclear disarmament regime, and resource persons from the region.
