Nuclear weapon ban treaty

In 2016, the UN General Assembly decided by overwhelming majority to initiate negotiations on a treaty banning nuclear weapons in 2017. These negotiations concluded on 7 July 2017 in New York, when 122 states voted for the adoption of the Treaty for the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons! On 20 September, the Treaty will open for signature at a high-level meeting in New York. If you are a civil society representative interested in attending the signing ceremony, a limited number of passes will be available - you will need to submit an application online starting on Wednesday, 6 September at 12:00 ET.
