On Thursday 14th September, BASIC’s Emerging Voices Network (EVN) hosted a webinar event, on Humanitarian Impacts and the NPT: ‘One Year on from RevCon’, in collaboration with International Student Young Pugwash (ISYP) and International Physicians for the Prevention of Nuclear War (IPPNW) Students. This event focused on the humanitarian impacts agenda within the context of the NPT process, and explored the range of current humanitarian impact concerns within today’s security context, reflecting on engagement with this issue during last year’s tenth NPT Review Conference and any developments since. This event also discussed possible obstacles and opportunities for the humanitarian impacts agenda within the new Review Cycle, and highlights the role and importance of early career professionals in furthering such work within the NPT.
