Vital Working Papers for June-July 2017 Session of Negotiations on a Treaty to Prohibit Nuclear Weapons
We wish to highlight two resources for the upcoming June-July session of negotiations on a treaty to prohibit nuclear weapons, leading to their total elimination: Global Security Institute’s working paper, ” The Turtle, the Horse and Nuclear Weapons,” by Jonathan Granoff, and the International Association of Lawyers Against Nuclear Arms’ working paper, ” Selected Elements of a Treaty Prohibiting Nuclear Weapons.
Both papers emphasize that a prohibition treaty must be seen, and must be presented, as codifying existing law as to the illegality of the use and threat of use of nuclear weapons.
