    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.

These events and issues will be debated at this upcoming EU conference, introduced here by Matthew Cottee.
