Parliamentarians for Nuclear Non-Proliferation and Disarmament is a network dedicated to providing parliamentarians worldwide with up to date information on nuclear weapons policies and to helping parliamentarians become engaged in nuclear nonproliferation and disarmament initiatives.
PNND is a non-partisan forum for parliamentarians, nationally and internationally, to share resources and information, develop cooperative strategies and engage in nuclear disarmament issues, initiatives and arenas. It is a program of the Global Security Institute and Middle Powers Initiative. Its activities and development are guided by the PNND Global Council, which comprises parliamentarians representing the countries in which PNND is most active.
Parliamentarians, because of their close relationship to constituents and their connections with parliamentary colleagues worldwide, have a crucial role to play in crafting policies that meet the security needs of the citizens of their countries, regions and the world.
The network of Parliamentarians for Nuclear Non-Proliferation and Disarmament helps parliamentarians play this role more effectively by providing them with:
Information on nuclear disarmament issues and on international events including United Nations disarmament meetings
Samples of parliamentary resolutions, motions, questions and legislation from around the world
Contacts with parliamentary colleagues in other countries with whom to share information and ideas
A forum for developing joint strategies between parliaments
