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.



The future of disarmament and non-proliferation education: Aiming for continuity or a new direction?

Disarmament and non-proliferation education is an essential tool of the international community to achieve and maintain peace. However, current practices, entailing only a few training courses developed by various institutions, do not maximize the full potential of the audiences of existing training courses. There is therefore a compelling need to take into account whole generations of people who represent an untapped audience, as they have never had access to this wealth of knowledge.
