20–21 April 2013
Following on from the success of the recent ICAN Civil Society Forum in Oslo, we’ll hold a two-day campaigners meeting in Geneva from 20–21 April. This is immediately before the 2013 meeting of parties to the Non-Proliferation Treaty (22 April – 3 May), where we will continue to build recognition of the unacceptable humanitarian impact of nuclear weapons and the need for a multilateral process of negotiations for a treaty banning nuclear weapons.
We hope that governments will welcome the outcome of the Oslo conference on the Humanitarian Impact of Nuclear Weapons, hosted by Norway from 4–5 March, and the announcement by Mexico to hold a follow-up conference. The campaigners meeting will focus on the road towards Mexico, and how to use forums like the NPT for building our campaign. An agenda for the meeting will be posted here shortly.
