The SCRAP Weapons Framework for a Treaty on General and Complete Disarmament
SCRAP Weapons has developed a Framework for a Treaty on General and Complete Disarmament (GCD), which builds on the provisions of pre-existing international agreements and provides a framework for governments to move towards comprehensive disarmament. It builds on the legal obligation outlined in Article VI of the Non-Proliferation Treaty ‘to pursue negotiations in good faith on effective measures relating to cessation of the nuclear arms race at an early date and to nuclear disarmament, and on a treaty on general and complete disarmament under strict and effective international control’.
