International Conference on Nuclear Disarmament in the European Parliament
An international conference in the European Parliament on a comprehensive approach towards nuclear disarmament. Key-organisers are Abolition 2000 Europe, PNND (Parliamentary Network for Nuclear Disarmament), Olof Palme International Center and most probably it will become an official EU conference as we have gathered support from key MEP's from the six largest political parties in the EP. The conference wants to look to the growing role of the EU on non-proliferation and nuclear disarmament and look to lessons learned from past disarmament treaties. The conference will address the preservation of the coherence of the NPT: non-proliferation and disarmament. We will end the conference with a strong focus on compliance with NPT Article VI and discuss the way ahead for the EU to pursue nuclear disarmament at the 2007 NPT PrepCom. This will be an ideal moment for you to get in touch with MEP's.
