Time for a new roadmap to nuclear disarmament?

Seventy years after the destruction of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, the world is no closer to an unequivocal commitment to abolishing nuclear weapons.

The recent (27 April – 22 May) review conference of the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons (NPT) failed to reach consensus on how a world free of nuclear weapons could be achieved, and concluded without a final document. This raises the question whether it is time for a new framework.
