Parliamentarians for Nuclear Non-Proliferation and Disarmament (PNND)

Parliamentarians for Nuclear Non-proliferation and Disarmament (PNND) is a global cross-party network of over 800 parliamentarians from more than 80 countries working to prevent nuclear proliferation and achieve nuclear disarmament. Membership is open to current members of legislatures and parliaments at state, federal, national and regional levels.

PNND’s membership includes current and former prime ministers, foreign ministers, other ministers, speakers/chairs of parliaments, chairs/deputy-chairs of key parliamentary committees (foreign affairs, defence, environment, human rights…), members of parliamentary delegations to key inter-parliamentary bodies (NATO Parliamentary Assembly, OSCE Parliamentary Assembly, Inter-Parliamentary Union…) and others.

PNND is active in a wide range of nuclear non-proliferation and disarmament issues and initiatives including ending nuclear tests, preventing proliferation of nuclear technology and materials suitable for bomb-making, establishing regional nuclear-weapon-free zones, lowering the role of nuclear weapons in security doctrines, reducing nuclear-weapons budgets to help cover economic and development needs, and advancing comprehensive nuclear disarmament through a nuclear weapons convention.

PNND members advance these issues through legislation, motions and debates in parliament, joint parliamentary statements, parliamentary events, questions to the government and participation in delegations to international bodies and forums. (See PNND/IPU Handbook for Parliamentarians for examples of such action).

PNND works closely with international organisations including the United Nations and the Comprehensive Nuclear Test Ban Treaty Organisation, other networks of legislators involved in global issues – such as the Parliamentary Network for Conflict Prevention, the Parliamentary Forum on Small Arms and Light Weapons and Mayors for Peace – and global nuclear disarmament networks including Abolition 2000, Middle Powers Initiative and the Global Security Institute.
 

At a time when the international community is facing unprecedented global challenges, parliamentarians can take on leading roles in ensuring sustainable global security, while reducing the diversion of precious resources from human needs… I salute Parliamentarians for Nuclear Non-Proliferation and Disarmament for its related efforts and for its work towards building support for a nuclear weapon convention.
