Vienna Conference on the Humanitarian Impact of Nuclear Weapons

Since the 2010 Review Conference of the Parties to the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons (NPT), the international community has refocused its attention to the humanitarian dimension of, and the risks associated with, nuclear weapons. This culminated in the organization of three Conferences on the Humanitarian Impact of Nuclear Weapons in Oslo (March 2013), Nayarit (February 2014) and Vienna (December 2014). From the Vienna meeting, the “Austrian Pledge”, a national pledge binding to Austria, was presented by Austrian Deputy Foreign Minister Michael Linhart. The pledge highlighted Austria’s goal to rid the world of nuclear weapons for human security, and called Nuclear Weapon States to pursue disarmament. During the 2015 NPT Review Conference, the Austrian Pledge was renamed the "Humanitarian Pledge."
