Nuclear disarmament issues

Nuclear disarmament issues have been discussed within and outside the United Nations since the very beginning of the nuclear age. A number of agreements have been signed by which the existing nuclear arsenals have been reduced, their deployment excluded from certain environments and regions and international norms against their proliferation and nuclear testing established. Legal aspects of the threat or use of nuclear weapons have been addressed in recent years as well.
