Realising Global Disarmament

Arms Trade Treaty - CSP5
coming up

In light of recent developments, the erosion of the UN Secretary-General’s disarmament agenda is well underway. The role of Civil Society Organisations in disarmament processes has never been more important. It is crucial that we support The SCRAP Weapons Treaty, and introduce it to the General Debate at the start of Committee 1 of the UNGA

Now, NGOs and Civil Society must overcome the compartmentalization of disarmament goals, and unify initiatives across the conventional and nuclear spheres of disarmament, to Secure Our Common Future.

Please note that the event is only open to registered CSP5 delegates.
