Annual Seminar


October 22 – 28 October 2013

“Peace through Disarmament” is a major focus for the United Nations. This excerpt from the Department for Disarmament Affairs’ vision statement sums up this avenue of the UN’s work: “We acknowledge that disarmament alone will not produce world peace. Yet we also maintain that the elimination of weapons of mass destruction, illicit arms trafficking, and burgeoning weapons stockpiles would advance both peace and development goals. It would accomplish this by reducing the effects of wars, eliminating some key incentives to new conflicts, and liberating resources to improve the lives of all the peoples of the United Nations and the natural environment in which they live.”
