German and Japanese perspective on the current nuclear disarmament architecture

Dr. Ulrich Kühn

Interview with the Japanese-German Center Berlin

 

In the conversation moderated by Renate Tenbusch, Director of the EU Office of the Friedrich-Ebert- Foundation, Ulrich Kühn discusses the current nuclear disarmament architecture with Ambassador ABE Nobuyasu, former UN Under-Secretary-General for Disarmament Affairs. He points out that nuclear arms control is in crisis. Restraint is out of fashion. And while in an ideal world the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons (TPNW) and the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) would be complementary, the entry into force of the TPNW is leading to political pressure on the member states of the NPT, whose review conference is scheduled to take place this year.
