This edition of the Occasional Paper, published by the United Nations Office for Disarmament Affairs, celebrates the fifteenth anniversary of the United Nations Study on Disarmament and Non-Proliferation Education, which was presented to the United Nations General Assembly in 2002 (A/57/124). It contains contributions from experts from around the world, which showcase fresh perspectives, new ideas and innovations in disarmament and non-proliferation education.



Education: A weapon for peace—The case of the nuclear ban treaty

Education is an empowering force—a force that creates knowledge, builds confidence, breaks down barriers and creates opportunities never thought possible before. This is the vision Peace Boat has followed over its more than 30 years of activities promoting education for peace, disarmament and sustainability. It is also the model that drove the humanitarian disarmament process that led to the adoption, on 7 July 2017, of the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons (TPNW).
