NWC Reset: Frameworks for a Nuclear-Weapon-Free World

Event Date: 9th August 2022
Location: Internet 20:00 BST

The first, NWC Reset: Frameworks for a Nuclear-Weapon-Free World, supports the call for a timebound framework for achieving the global elimination of nuclear weapons no later than 2045, and suggests three possible alternatives for establishing such a framework:
  1. negotiation of a comprehensive nuclear weapons convention(NWC) or package of agreements; 
  2. negotiation of a framework agreement which includes the legal commitment to achieve a nuclear-weapon-free world and provides a process for agreeing on details over time; or 
  3. negotiation of protocols to the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons (TPNW) or related instruments which nuclear armed and allied states would sign as part of a process for them to join the TPNW.
These options will be explored in an online side-event on August 9 (from 3:00 – 5:00pm New York time) entitled NWC Reset: Frameworks for a nuclear-weapon-free world
