NATO Nuclear Policy


  • 25 of the 28 member states of NATO, including Canada, are defined as being non-nuclear-weapon states in the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty
  • NATO regards nuclear deterrence as a key part of its military doctrine

This contradiction has long undermined attempts by the international community to take serious steps towards nuclear disarmament.

Project Ploughshares supports the call for a clear reversal of NATO’s policy of continuing commitment to nuclear weapons and nuclear-use strategies.
