This will be the second in a series of parliamentary forums to discuss the UN Secretary-General’s Disarmament Agenda and the role of parliamentarians to advance this, working in cooperation with governments, the UN and civil society.

The forum is being held in conjunction with the 142nd Assembly of the Inter-Parliamentary Union, and 2 weeks prior to the Non-Proliferation Treaty Review Conference which takes place at the United Nations in New York.

The meeting will consider the draft of a parliamentary handbook entitled ‘Assuring our Common Future: A Guide to Parliamentary Action in support of Disarmament for Security and Sustainable Development.’

Feedback from the roundtable will assist in editing the draft handbook in order for it to be finalized, published and released at the 143rd Assembly of the Inter-Parliamentary Union in Kigali, Rwanda October, 2020, with a follow-up United Nations launch in New York during UN Disarmament Week 2020.
