  • (1) the penal destruction or reduction of the armament of a country defeated in war (the provision under the Versailles Treaty [1919] for the disarmament of Germany and its allies is an example of this conception of disarmament); (2) bilateral disarmament agreements applying to specific geographic areas (naval disarmament in this sense is represented by the Rush–Bagot Agreement between the United States and Great Britain, which, since 1817, has kept the Great Lakes disarmed); (3) the complete abolition of all armaments, as advocated by utopian thinkers and occasionally by governments; and (4) the reduction and limitation of national armament by general international agreement through such international forums as the League of Nations, in the past, and the United Nations, in the present. This last is the most frequent current use of the term.
  • Current trends include an increase interest in disarmament for nations.For example, STRATFOR reports that “Indonesia, Japan and a number of other countries will have a special world disarmament meeting on the sidelines of the U.N. General Assembly in New York in September, according to Indonesian Foreign Minister Marty Natalegawa, Xinhua reported Aug. 4.…Natalegawa said Australia would join the efforts of Indonesia and Japan.”
  • …The communication of the experiences of Hiroshima and Nagasaki appears to be facing a real problem. This needs to be addressed urgently because the hibakusha (atomic bomb survivors) are aging rapidly, and when they die, they will take with them the only first-hand knowledge of the unspeakable horrors of nuclear destruction. We must consider new ways to teach children about war and the prospects for peace.…And at the same time, we need to feel empowered to take a stand for peace and make a difference in our lives and in the world. In this article, the importance of nuclear disarmament education in a wider context of peace education is stressed and suggestions are offered to improve current nuclear disarmament education in Japan, and elsewhere.….Yumiko Nogami, Resident of Hiroshima, Japan, 2006.
  • The Conference on Disarmament (CD), established in 1979 as the single multilateral disarmament negotiating forum of the international community, was a result of the first Special Session on Disarmament of the United Nations General Assembly held in 1978.
