Summary

The TPNW demonstrates growing support of humanitarian efforts to take action against nuclear weapons. It marks a fundamental shift by some states and individuals in the international community in their approach to addressing concerns regarding nuclear weapons and represents their willingness to challenge the status quo regarding the power of the nuclear states and their allies. Humanitarian disarmament efforts through civil society groups, in conjunction with a core group of like-minded states, have rallied together to outlaw nuclear weapons. The intention is to relegate them to the annals of history – eliminating them forever.
