Hiroshima for Global Peace

Hiroshima Report 2023

The Japan Institute of International Affairs (JIIA) was commissioned to conduct the “Hiroshima Report Project,” one of the initiatives to materialize the “Hiroshima for Global Peace” Plan, and the results were compiled into the Hiroshima Report 2023.


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.

Booklet:「The Global Threat of Nuclear Weapons」

In anticipation of an increase in the number of visitors to Hiroshima from Japan and abroad in conjunction with the G7 Summit, we have changed the cover design of “the Global Threat of Nuclear wepons”,an informational booklet for the general public.

We have used diagrams and illustrations to make the booklet more accessible to a wider audience, including junior high and high school students. Please use the booklet when reading the Hiroshima Report.
