We are excited to share that our President, Ivana Nikolić Hughes, and our Policy and Advocacy Coordinator, Christian N. Ciobanu, have published an article in the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists. The authors discuss a new resolution in the United Nations General Assembly on addressing the legacy of nuclear weapons testing and use and the stunning adoption vote that occurred on October 27 in the First Committee of the General Assembly. Working closely with the governments of the Republics of Kazakhstan and Kiribati, Christian has played a pivotal role at every step of the process of bringing this resolution to life and getting it adopted. As the title of the article states powerfully, the 171 votes in favor, and only six abstentions and four no votes represented a victory for nuclear justice. The article discusses the vote and the next steps in this important endeavour and also makes a strong case for the inextricable link between nuclear justice and nuclear abolition.
