REQUIRED READING: "Banning nuclear weapons" from Reaching Critical Will

Banning nuclear weapons: principles and
elements for a legally binding instrument

by Reaching Critical Will.
Brand new: Banning nuclear weapons: principles and elements for a legally binding instrument - by Reaching Critical Will.

This comprehensive document is vital for everyone to read and share as the UN negotiations on a global nuclear weapons ban gets under way.

I encourage nuclear abolition advocates to dig into the details, and find ways to share elements that you find particularly salient. As "Banning nuclear weapons" itself says (p. 11):

Acknowledging that public conscience, awareness, and mobilisation is important to the success of any international law is a good way to remind states that they will be held to account for their commitments, and that their policies and practices are embedded within a context of the rule of law, international cooperation, and public oversight.

I'm already mulling key sections that have particularly caught my attention.
