I will underline the special character of nuclear weapons and will discuss the desirability and the feasibility of a nuclear-weapon-free world. Some past activities promoting nuclear disarmament and the transition to a nuclear-weapon-free world will be reviewed. I will discuss the significant developments initiated by the January 2007 Wall Street Journal op-ed coauthored by Shultz, Perry, Kissinger and Nunn, which culminated in the April 2009 Prague speech by President Obama. Finally, I will outline recent developments and future steps toward a nuclear-weapon-free world.
