Abolition 2000 – Global Network to Eliminate Nuclear Weapons


This group was established at the Abolition 2000 AGM in Berlin in 2016. It aims to advance nuclear prohibition in nuclear armed and nuclear-reliant states, using the momentum and anti-nuclear norm from the Ban Treaty currently being negotiated but which these countries are not supporting.

The working group will address and counter the arguments the nuclear reliant states use to justify their continuing adherence to nuclear deterrence. The group will act as a forum for discussion on different kinds of thinking to instigate new and effective solutions on security issues in order to faciltiate nuclear disarmament.
