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.

There are few higher education institutions in the United States, or even in much of the world, which offer a rigorous and robust programme of disarmament education. The concept garners little attention in academia. Even within the United Nations General Assembly First Committee, on disarmament and international security, the topic receives little attention from States. Few States submit reports to the United Nations Secretary-General as requested by successive resolutions and there is scant funding available for substantive programming.
