An overview of United Nations member states’ positions on nuclear disarmament and the humanitarian impact of nuclear weapons
An updated version of the report ‘Counting to zero’ has just been produced by ILPI’s Weapons of Mass Destruction Project. The report aims to map the interest and participation of States in the issue of nuclear disarmament, with a focus on statistical indicators.
The report is intended as a tool for diplomats, think-tanks, researchers, civil society organisations, and indeed anyone interested in humanitarian disarmament. It 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 nuclear weapons in the context of humanitarian disarmament.
The report is exclusively built on publicly available sources, and all sources are listed. Anyone interested in this topic is invited to peer-review and verify our data. This is the eighth edition of the report. To read the full report and access previous editions go to the project website.
