Dear friends,

PNND, the Inter Parliamentary Union (IPU) and the World Future Council are organising a one-day international workshop for parliamentarians on Good Nuclear Disarmament Practice on October 17, 2014. The workshop will be held following the conclusion of the 131st Inter Parliamentary Union Assembly in Geneva, Switzerland.

We kindly request you to encourage a representative of your parliament’s IPU delegation to attend the workshop.

The workshop aims to follow-up the resolution adopted by the 130th IPU Assembly on Toward a Nuclear Weapon Free World: The Contribution of Parliaments. It will examine examples of good parliamentary practice on nuclear weapons prohibition, nuclear weapons financing, phasing out the reliance on nuclear deterrence, and supporting multilateral nuclear disarmament initiatives. Parliamentarians attending will have an opportunity to share good practice from their parliaments, as well as to explore practice from other parliaments that may be appropriate to replicate.

We plan to hold the workshop in English, Arabic, French, Spanish and possibly also Russian.

Mr Martin Chungong, Secretary-General of the IPU, has sent an invitation to the workshop to the Speakers/Presidents of all IPU member parliaments. The invitation also includes the registration form for the workshop.

Further information can be found online at:
—    131st IPU Assembly pre and post Assembly meetings
—    IPU Assembly – Workshop on Good Nuclear Disarmament Practice

Thank you for your kind attention to this request.

Yours sincerely
