ICAN partnership form

Any non-governmental organization is eligible to become an ICAN Partner Organization. No joining fee or annual subscription is required, though financial and other relevant contributions are most welcome.

ICAN is a global campaign coalition working to mobilize people in all countries to inspire, persuade and pressure their government to initiate and support negotiations for a treaty banning nuclear weapons. ICAN calls on states, international organizations, civil society organizations and other actors to:

  • Acknowledge that any use of nuclear weapons would cause catastrophic humanitarian harm.
  • Acknowledge that there exists a universal humanitarian imperative to ban nuclear weapons, even for states that do not possess these weapons.
  • Acknowledge that the nuclear possessors have an obligation to eliminate their nuclear weapons.
  • Take immediate action to support a multilateral process of negotiations for a treaty banning nuclear weapons.


Partnership pledge

Partner Organizations agree to:

  • Promote ICAN’s objective of a treaty banning nuclear weapons in their work and identify publicly with ICAN.
  • Keep ICAN informed of their plans and activities in support of ICAN’s objective and operate non-violently.

Partner Organizations are entitled and encouraged to:

  • Sign up to ICAN’s e-mail list of Partner Organizations to receive campaign updates and information about decisions of the International Steering Group (ISG) and request the ISG to consider any campaign-related issue.
  • Request, use and publicize ICAN materials in accordance with ICAN’s communications policies, and seek technical, financial and strategic support from the ISG and International Staff Team.
