The states who are party to the 2010 Review Conference have been positive in affirming the so called 'three pillars' of the Non Proliferation Treaty (NPT). These are the non-proliferation of nuclear weapons, nuclear disarmament by the Nuclear Weapons States, and the right to the peaceful use of nuclear technology.
It is this last point, however, that has increasingly concerned me over the first week of this Review Conference.
Nuclear non-proliferation conference can be inspired by MLK's legacy
The days preceding the opening of the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) Review Conference at the UN in New York on the 3 May 2010 have been both compelling and exhausting. Many international NGOs and their supporters have been busily engaged at the 'Disarm Now' International NGO Conference at the Riverside Church in Harlem, an historic and symbolic venue for the peace movement in the US.
