ILPI nuclear weapons project

Norway

Project Leader: Gro Nystuen

Aim of the project

The ILPI Nuclear Weapons Project started in September 2011 with the aim to shape and inform the debate on how to eliminate nuclear weapons, by way of analysis, networking and outreach.

More broadly the project aimed at shaping and informing the debate on how to eliminate nuclear weapons, by way of analysis, networking and outreach. The core of the project was policy-oriented analyses of the relationships between nuclear weapons and international law, as well as on security, developmental and environmental dimensions of nuclear weapons. The project communicated and cooperated with others working to eliminate nuclear weapons, from States, international organisations and civil society.

The rationale for the project was that nuclear weapons should be banned for three main reason:

  • They threaten human existence,
  • Their use violates international humanitarian law,
  • Their development and maintenance consume massive financial resources.

Donor

The project was funded by the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
