This treaty is a strong categorical prohibition of nuclear weapons and is really rooted in humanitarian law. It provides a path for nuclear-armed states to join. We don't expect them to sign the treaty right now, but it's a good starting point for changing perceptions.feedback

We are particularly happy the text is rooted in humanitarian principles and that it builds on previous prohibitions of unacceptable weapons, such as biological and chemical weapons, landmines and cluster munitions. Nuclear weapons are ethically unacceptable in the 21st century. Intended to indiscriminately kill civilians, this 1940s technology is putting countless of lives at risk every day. Their continued existence undermines the moral credibility of every country which relies on them. A treaty to ban them, as a first step towards their elimination, will have real and lasting impact.feedback
