Oslo and beyond

On 25 February 2013 the Kyoda News in Japan published an opinion piece by MAPW's Tilman Ruff (Co-President of IPPNWi), Oslo and beyond: the humanitarian dimensions of nuclear weapons, about the implications of the forthcoming international conference on the humanitarian consequences of nuclear weapons to be held in Oslo in March.

"Understanding the catastrophe any use of nuclear weapons would be, and the imperative to prevent the untreatable, will drive such a process. It should begin from Oslo".
