Disarmament and the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty

May 21, 2015  Comments are off

Acceptance of the P5-oriented ‘disarmament’ outcome presented today at the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) Review Conference in New York would be a blow for the credibility of disarmament internationally. In a process that involved no formal consultation with civil society and whose end game has been characterised by predictable anti-democratic back room deals, the nuclear-armed states have worked hard to impose their will on the rest of the world.

Concerted international action is needed to prevent the emergence of weapons which could operate without meaningful human control. With states continuing to research and develop relevant weapons systems, international action is needed to prevent the emergence of fully autonomous weapons—systems which, once activated and their mission defined, could select people or objects to attack without any further human intervention.
