On Thursday, November 12 Parliament representatives joined global experts for the virtual conference Nuclear Weapons and International Law 2020.

Sponsored by the International Section of the New York State Bar Association, this free virtual conference brought together thought-leaders, policy-makers, and experts – from the UN, other domestic and international governmental agencies, think-tanks, NGOs, and academia – for a comprehensive examination of this still grave but often overlooked subject. The program included panels on the present facts and policies about nuclear weapons, international law, including present and proposed treaties, the role of the UN and other organizations, and how to both increase public awareness of the continued threat of nuclear weapon and create new, more stable international norms of conduct and policy.
