    The nuclear ban treaty and its possible ramifications

    01 November 2016.  Frustration at the slow pace of nuclear-disarmament efforts has fuelled a drive to establish a nuclear ban treaty. While the initiative could put pressure on nuclear-weapons states to move towards disarmament at a quicker pace, Paulina Izewicz argues that any attempt to decouple their perceived need to retain nuclear weapons from the broader strategic context may prove to be an exercise in futility.

    Looking forward to the 2016 EU Non-Proliferation and Disarmament Conference

    28 October 2016.  2016 has been an important year in the non-proliferation and disarmament field. January saw the high of implementation day for the Iran deal, September the low of North Korea’s fifth nuclear test, and on 27 October UN member states voted to begin negotiations on a treaty to ban nuclear weapons entirely. These events and issues will be debated at this upcoming EU conference, introduced here by Matthew Cottee.
