An overview of United Nations member states’ positions on multilateral disarmament processes
This report is produced by the Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD) Project of the International Law and Policy Institute. It is intended as a tool for diplomats, think-tanks, researchers, civil society organizations, and indeed anyone interested in humanitarian disarmament. The report is motivated by the need for an accurate and methodical mapping of how the primary players on the international stage—the members and observers of the United Nations—approach the issue of WMDs in the context of humanitarian disarmament. Which states tend to be part of disarmament initiatives to move the agenda forward? Is South Africa party to the Emergency Assistance Convention? And how many states supported the last joint statement of the Humanitarian Initiative?
