International Relations Committee

Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty and nuclear disarmament inquiry

open

Oral evidence ongoing.

Scope of the inquiry

As a result of rising tensions between nuclear-armed states and the fragmenting of existing non-proliferation and arms control agreements, nuclear weapons are on the international agenda in a way they have not been since the end of the Cold War. In this context, the House of Lords International Relations Committee is launching an inquiry into the NPT and nuclear disarmament, during which it will examine the state of global nuclear diplomacy and the United Kingdom’s role in it.
