World disarmament campaign

The important role that world public opinion can play in efforts to promote the cause of disarmament was underlined by the General Assembly in the 1978 Final Document, which declared that in order for an international conscience to develop and for world public opinion to exercise a positive influence, the United Nations should increase the dissemination of information on the armaments race and disarmament with the full co-operation of Member States. The week beginning on 24 October, the date of the founding of the United Nations, was proclaimed Disarmament Week, a week devoted to fostering the objectives of disarmament.
