Nuclear disarmament is a shared goal, and many steps towards it have been identified in past Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) final review conference documents and in the United Nations General Assembly. Meanwhile, in an increasingly uncertain strategic environment, the reality is that nuclear disarmament is at an impasse. Dialogue is needed with a view to achieving the requisite collective intentionality required for future progress and transcending what has become an unhelpfully polarized discourse within the NPT and other forums related to the management of nuclear dangers. This publication presents suggestions to contribute to common dialogue towards that end.
