Changing the Script: A Report from the 2014 Nuclear Discussion Forum

Event Report | March 09, 2015

New Challenges and Solutions for the Nonproliferation and Disarmament Regime

In 2014, EWI and the Permanent Mission of the Republic of Kazakhstan hosted the third annual Nuclear Discussion Forum (NDF), a series of off-the-record meetings that brought representatives of United Nations Member States together to discuss key achievements, opportunities and challenges that lie ahead of the 2015 Treaty on the Non-proliferations of Nuclear Weapons (NPT) Review Conference.

We believe this report serves two basic purposes. First, it is a timely document that blends content from the Forum’s rich discussions with a substantive background on the most prominent issues that emerged during the sessions. Second, the report makes a number of actionable recommendations for consideration by the United Nations First Committee and other disarmament bodies.
