ICAN campaign meeting, Geneva

20–21 April 2013 Following on from the success of the recent ICAN Civil Society Forum in Oslo, we’ll hold a two-day campaigners meeting in Geneva from 20–21 April. This is immediately before the 2013 meeting of parties to the Non-Proliferation Treaty (22 April – 3 May), where we will continue to build recognition of the unacceptable humanitarian impact of nuclear weapons and the need for a multilateral process of negotiations for a treaty banning nuclear weapons.
