Stockholm Initiative for Nuclear Disarmament

The Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons (NPT) is a landmark international treaty and the cornerstone of the global nuclear disarmament architecture. Launched in Stockholm in June 2019, the Stockholm Initiative for Nuclear Disarmament aims to promote a successful outcome of the 10th Review Conference of the NPT through building political support for a pragmatic and result-oriented nuclear disarmament agenda.
