Parliamentarians for Nuclear Non-proliferation and Disarmament (PNND), a program of the Global Security Institute, published its Annual Report 2012. PNND is a unique international network of legislators from over 80 countries who are committed to advancing nuclear non-proliferation and disarmament.
The tasks required to prevent nuclear proliferation and achieve nuclear disarmament are many and varied—and the focus differs between legislatures according to the specific security issues for their countries and regions. Thus, PNND has a range of programs addressing numerous issues and initiatives suitable to various political environments. Common to all is the bene fit of being part of an international network committed to progress on achieving a nuclear weapons-free world, a global norm that requires new levels of cooperation.
