Global Enterprise to Strengthen Non-Proliferation and Disarmament


Working toward a shared vision of a nuclear weapons-free world

Challenge

The risks of nuclear use, proliferation, and terrorism are increasing, and international polarization on non-proliferation and disarmament issues is worsening. These dynamics threaten the stability of critical international arms control regimes, like the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT).

Action

Strengthen the NPT regime by convening a high-level, international dialogue to drive fresh, creative thinking, generate new ideas, and address political divisions that are stalling progress.

Results

Revitalized international relationships that create a strong foundation for success at the 10th NPT Review Conference and re-build the long-term vision for a world without nuclear weapons.

The international non-proliferation and disarmament community is increasingly divided over critical questions: What is the role of nuclear deterrence? What is the vision for nuclear disarmament and arms reduction? What steps are necessary to prevent proliferation and use of nuclear weapons? This polarization challenges the stability of the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons (NPT) and its role as a central and credible forum for dialogue and progress on preventing proliferation, fostering the peaceful use of nuclear energy, and advancing nuclear disarmament.

The Global Enterprise to Strengthen Non-Proliferation and Disarmament (GE) is a multi-year Track 1.5 initiative designed to strengthen the NPT. Since 2018, GE meetings have convened officials and experts from over 20 countries in an informal setting where they can build understanding around different perspectives and priorities, find areas of agreement, and work collaboratively to find creative solutions to difficult problems. Participants have identified practical steps, new initiatives, and meaningful commitments that States parties can employ to demonstrate their ability to cooperate and advance treaty goals at the 10th NPT Review Conference and beyond.
