Handbook: Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons (TPNW)

On the occasion of the entry into force of the UN Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons (TPNW) on 22 January 2021, SGI produced two educational tools to inform the public about the significance of this milestone. The treaty was adopted in July 2017 at the United Nations Headquarters. It is the first international law that comprehensively prohibits all activities related to nuclear weapons.

This handbook explains what the treaty is about, how it was adopted, and what it envisions. You can download the PDF in English and Japanese.
