Civil Society Engagement in Disarmament Processes The Case for a Nuclear Weapons Ban

United Nations Office for Disarmament Affairs (UNODA), New York, 2016, pp. 76

This publication focuses on the role of the Japanese hibakusha’s (atomic bomb survivors) experience in advocating for a Treaty that could ban nuclear weapons. It also discusses the impact of nuclear weapons on the environment as well as the human body, and offers arguments that delegitimise nuclear violence.
