International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons

ican

The International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons (ICAN) is a global campaign coalition working to mobilize people in all countries to inspire, persuade and pressure their governments to initiate and support negotiations for a treaty banning  nuclear weapons . ICAN calls on states, international organizations, civil society organizations and other actors to:

  • Acknowledge that any use of nuclear weapons would cause catastrophic humanitarian and environmental harm.
  • Acknowledge that there is a universal humanitarian imperative to ban nuclear weapons, even for states that do not possess them.
  • Acknowledge that the nuclear-armed states have an obligation to eliminate their nuclear weapons completely.
  • Take immediate action to support a multilateral process of negotiations for a treaty banning nuclear weapons.

NPA has been a member of the International Steering Group of ICAN since 2013
