Raising the Bar

Thirty years ago, New Zealand officially became “nuclear free” with the enactment of the New Zealand Nuclear Free Zone, Disarmament, and Arms Control Act 1987. It was an extraordinary step, marking out New Zealand’s independent foreign policy, and resulting in the suspension of treaty relationships with the United States.

The culmination of decades of rising anti-nuclear sentiment and nation-wide protests, the law was truly historic and has led the way internationally. Is it significant to us in 2017? Does it still matter? Should you care? In this talk, my answer to all these question is a resounding “yes!” Come along and I’ll explain why.

Bio:
Treasa Dunworth is an Associate Professor with the University of Auckland where she teaches Public International Law, Disarmament Law and International Peace and Security. Her current research project is examining the humanitarian discourse in disarmament and arms control.

Prior to joining the Auckland Law School in 1999, Treasa worked with the Harvard Sussex Program on Arms Control and Arms Limitation and then with the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (1995-1998). More recently, she has worked on a project with the New Zealand Ministry of Foreign Affairs examining international law issues involved in the push-to-open nuclear weapons disarmament negotiations.
