2020 marked the 50th anniversary of the NPT’s entry into force and the 25th anniversary of the indefinite extension of the treaty. During this time, the NPT has incorporated the vision and the ambition of state parties seeking peace and security through nuclear non-proliferation and disarmament.
This panel discussion explores legal, political and military obligations of NATO Allies within the framework of nuclear non-proliferation and disarmament, including NATO’s position on the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons (TPNW). It will address new and innovative approaches to nuclear non-proliferation and disarmament and possible ways forward.
This panel is part of a research project funded by a grant from the Carnegie Corporation of New York. Our research aims to engage and assist with the discussions among state parties and experts in the lead up to the 10th NPT Review Conference.
