Nuclear Ban info: the UN Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons (TPNW)

On 7 July 2017 an overwhelming majority of the world’s nations adopted a landmark global agreement to ban nuclear weapons, known officially as the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons. On 22 January 2021, the treaty entered into force. The first Meeting of the States Parties to the treaty was due to take place in in Vienna in March 2022, but this was postponed for a second time due to Covid, and now takes place over 21-23 June (see updates below).
