Disarmament

The United Nations took a major step in 2007 towards reforming and advancing the international disarmament and non-proliferation agenda through the establishment of an Office for Disarmament Affairs that would interact more effectively with the Secretary-General in addressing global disarmament issues. Headed by a High Representative, the new Office would replace the Department for Disarmament Affairs and assume its functions and mandate in terms of providing organizational support for norm-setting in the field of disarmament.
