About us

NoFirstUse Global is a platform and a network of organizations, academics, policy makers and civil society advocates working cooperatively for adoption of no-first-use policies by nuclear-armed States, support for such policies from nuclear allied and non-nuclear countries, and the implementation of such policies to help achieve broader nuclear risk-reduction, non-proliferation and disarmament goals.

Co-founding organizations

A working group of Abolition 2000, the global civil society network for the elimination of nuclear weapons. The working group promotes measures to reduce the risks of nuclear weapons being used and to lower the role of nuclear weapons in security doctrines. These include de-alerting, eliminating launch on warning, lowering threat postures and adopting policies of no-first-use and/or sole purpose.

The countries that have created nuclear weapon free zones are providing important examples of how to enhance security without recourse to nuclear arms. But they are recklessly endangered by the first-use policies of many of the nuclear armed states, who criminally neglect their obligation to pursue negotiations on nuclear disarmament. Zona Libre works to ensure that the nuclear enslaved world learns from and follows the lead of the nuclear free world.
