Over 100 states are parties to regional agreements banning the development, deployment and testing of nuclear weapons in their territories. Other treaties prohibit nuclear weapons in space, the seabed, and Antarctica. This workshop will explore what lessons can be drawn from NWFZs (e.g. negotiating strategies and principles) for the global abolition of nuclear weapons under international law.
