TOPIC: NON-PROLIFERATION TREATY (NPT) REVISITED

March 5, 2020 was an important date for the global community: the world celebrated the 50th anniversary of the entry into force of the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons (NPT). A month before this relevant day, the Council President, Marc Pecsteen de Buytswerve affirmed:

"The members of the Security Council paid tribute to the historical achievements made under the NPT and underlined its essential role in the preservation of international peace, security and stability, as well as the ultimate objective of a world without nuclear weapons. In light of current international geopolitical challenges, they stressed the importance of upholding and strengthening the Treaty."

Model Security Council 2020 will provide program participants a platform to learn more and to gain experience addressing the three pillars of the NPT: non-proliferation, disarmament, and peaceful uses of nuclear energy. The program also aims to encourage young professionals to explore and to spark an interest in them in non-proliferation issues. The purpose of the conference will be to revisit and revise the presidential statement of March 5th, 2020.
