Hiroshima for Global Peace

The Hiroshima Report 2021:Recommendation

“The Hiroshima Report 2021 provides a timely update on the state of global nuclear security. While the situation remains precarious, 2021 offers us hope with the entry into force of the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons (TPNW) and the new US President, Joe Biden, committed to nuclear arms control. We can never allow ourselves to become complacent about the dangers posed by nuclear weapons, which is why it remains essential to guard the memory of the victims and survivors of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. The only way forward is a return to arms control treaties and multilateral cooperation.”

The Hiroshima Reports provide an invaluable overview of the status of nuclear disarmament and non-proliferation. Having experienced their catastrophic humanitarian impact, Hiroshima is – and must continue to be – the ground zero for our moral, legal and political reasoning around nuclear weapons. The entry into force of the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons gives hope that one day humanity will be freed from the dark shadow of nuclear war.
