UNHQ, New York
As recent geopolitical shifts continue to stress-test the existing regional and global nuclear orders, more than 100 UN Member States will gather in March 2017 to begin negotiating a nuclear weapons ban treaty.
In the run-up to these negotiations, FES New York and partners have brought timely insights and analyses from expert speakers about global nuclear policy challenges as well as an update on US policy debates from Washington to the UN. It has been an exchange of ideas among those who embrace the upcoming negotiations as a global effort to delegitimize nuclear weapons and others who see such talks as a distraction from the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons.
