Booklet: Ban nuclear weapons 2017
February 10, 2017
Historic negotiations will take place at the United Nations in 2017 on a treaty to prohibit nuclear weapons. This booklet explains the potential impact of the treaty, and how the negotiations have come about. ICAN is calling for the agreement to prohibit such activities as the development, production, testing, acquisition, stockpiling, transfer, deployment, use and threat of use of nuclear weapons. It should also provide an obligation for the complete elimination of nuclear weapons and a framework to achieve it.
