Global Change, Peace and Security is now accepting manuscripts for possible publication in a special issue, “Prohibiting Nuclear Weapons: Implications and Possibilities” to be published mid-2018. Prospective writers are asked to submit an abstract of their proposed research article by June 10th 2017, and papers will need to be submitted by November 30th 2017.
This special issue will examine the various aspects and implications of the UN negotiations on a treaty and other legal mechanisms for prohibiting nuclear weapons globally. The negotiations will take place in March, June and July 2017. While the negotiations have been opposed by eight of the nine current nuclear possessor states, 123 UN Member States supported the initiative at the 2016 UN General Assembly.
