Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty Review, 1995
Co-CHAIR: Neehar Mahidadia
Co-Chair: Daria Boulos
NOTE: DELEGATES IN THIS COMMITTEE WILL BE COMPETING IN DOUBLE DELEGATIONS.
Topic: The Future of Disarmament
Every five years, the United Nations helps facilitate a review of the NPT by its signing members to update its language and enhance its effectiveness. The group that met in New York in 1995 created a series of decisions that changed the aspects of the NPT. Part of the conference’s urgency was motivated by the Norwegian rocket launch, the Black Brant, which heightened Russian nuclear systems to a dangerous level. Some of the main topics discussed, as pushed by some of the signing members, include an indefinite extension of the treaty and greater oversight by the International Atomic Energy Association. Delegates will be asked to discuss the steps towards nuclear disarmament as well the future of the agreement. Instead of reenacting the events of 1995, delegates should consider their respective country policies to craft original recommendations directly addressing the international landscape at the time.
Should the treaty be extended indefinitely or be extended for an additional fixed period or period? Should this decision be made through a majority vote or a consensus?
Can we move to a nuclear weapon-free world?
Should there be greater oversight by the International Atomic Energy Association?
