This discussion was an exchange of ideas among those who embrace the upcoming negotiations as a global effort to delegitimize nuclear weapons and others who see such talks as a distraction from the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons. Expert speakers brought to the UN timely insights and analyses about global nuclear policy challenges as well as an update on US policy debates from Washington. It was intended to benefit UN Member States, Secretariat officials, and the wider UN environment in their preparations for the nuclear weapons prohibition treaty negotiations.
