Hiroshima for Global Peace

Hiroshima Report 2022New Publication: Hiroshima Report 2022

Hiroshima Report 2022

On April 14, 2022 Hiroshima Organization for Global Peace (HOPe) announced the latest publication of the Hiroshima Report. The Hiroshima Report 2022 studies, analyzes and evaluates 36 countries’ performance on nuclear disarmament, non-proliferation, and nuclear security in 2021.

The Hiroshima Report 2022 lays out challenges for nuclear-weapon-states to work on nuclear disarmament, and introduces efforts made by non-nuclear-weapon states.

HOPe and Hiroshima Prefecture hope to make the Hiroshima Report more widely known in the world in order to bolster the worldwide momentum for the abolition of nuclear weapons and motivate each country to take new measures for nuclear disarmament, non-proliferation and nuclear security.

As the locality that recovered from the destruction caused by the first dropping of an atomic bomb, we will continue its various initiatives toward a world free from nuclear weapons.
