ICAN at the NPT Review Conference

The 2015 Review Conference of the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty will be held in New York from 27 April-22 May.

The 2015 RevCon takes place after the three conferences on humanitarian impact of nuclear weapons in Oslo, Nayarit and Vienna. The Review Conference is one of the major events about nuclear weapons during 2015, and it is therefore important that ICAN participates actively and ensures that the humanitarian impact of nuclear weapons and a treaty banning nuclear weapons remain central in any discussions.

ICAN will be present throughout the four weeks of the Review Conference to advocate for a treaty banning nuclear weapons. All ICAN partners are encouraged to do outreach and lobby your government in the run up and throughout the four weeks of this conference.
