Booklet: The nuclear weapons ban treaty

November 28, 2017

Nuclear weapons threaten the very survival of humanity and our entire living planet. Their effects transcend national boundaries and span generations. They are immoral, illegitimate and now – at long last – illegal.

On 7 July 2017, following a decade of advocacy by ICAN and its partners, 122 nations voted to adopt a historic global agreement to ban nuclear weapons, known officially as the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons.
