After the signing of the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty in 1968, the debate on nuclear weapons was relegated to the background. But the problem still exists. The existence of arsenals of weapons of mass destruction and the failure of nuclear disarmament places us in a context in which human security is in danger. Civil society must demand the total elimination of nuclear weapons, the only possible scenario that guarantees the security of civilization.
The International Campaign for the Abolition of Nuclear Weapons, awarded with the Nobel Peace Prize in 2017, is fighting for the elaboration of a treaty that prohibits the use of these weapons at a global level, and that is ratified by the different countries of the world.
