This publication contains the statements by representatives of civil society organizations which were delivered on 7 May 2015 during the Non-Governmental Organization segment of the 2015 Review Conference of the Treaty on the NonProliferation of Nuclear Weapons.




Five years after the adoption of the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) Action Plan in 2010, states parties of the Treaty met to review its implementation. Compliance with commitments related to nuclear disarmament lagged far behind those related to non-proliferation or the peaceful uses of nuclear energy, and states possessing nuclear weapons were found to be continuing to invest in their arsenals. Tensions among nuclear-armed states were raised, and in the end, the Review Conference was unable to adopt an outcome because Israel, a non-state party, did not agree to its terms.
