Donate UN High-Level Conference on Nuclear Disarmament Inthe United Nations decided to hold a High Level Conference Summit on Nuclear Disarmament which was supposed to take place in in order to enhance progress toward the achievement of a nuclear weapons convention — a global treaty which includes the nuclear armed States to prohibit and eliminate nuclear weapons. Step up for nuclear abolition which calls on governments to ensure the High-Level Conference is held as planned.
Report of the Secretary-General. For nearly 40 years, UNIDIR has consistently produced a significant output of high-quality work that, as the General Assembly has observed, requires a high degree of expertise. The present report places the results of the assessment in the context of recent developments, notably the agenda for disarmament which was launched by the Secretary-General on 24 Mayas well as system-wide management reforms currently under way.
In the report, the important contribution that UNIDIR can make to encouraging new momentum and, potentially, progress on key disarmament issues is highlighted. The Expanding Development, Transfer and Use of Armed UAVs Armed unmanned aerial vehicles UAVs are rapidly spreading, raising new questions about the effectiveness of existing mechanisms to track or control their transfer and heightening concerns that the features that make them attractive to militaries may also make them susceptible to misuse.
This paper identifies trends in the expanding development, transfer and use of armed of UAVs to support States to consider whether there is a need for common standards or international understandings to be developed, with a view to ensuring appropriate levels of transparency, oversight and accountability for their transfer and use.
New Publication - Evidence of absence: Verifying removal of nuclear weapons Credible, reliable, and accurate verification techniques and arrangements are an essential element of the nuclear disarmament process.
This study outlines a possible arrangement for verifying the removal of nuclear warheads from delivery vehicles or launchers, and the withdrawal of nuclear bombs and warheads from States, territories and operational military bases.
These activities, which have long been conducted as a part of nuclear arms control and disarmament measures, are meaningful steps that can pave the way for the elimination of nuclear warheads.
An agreed procedure that allows the removal of nuclear weapons to be verified would be a valuable additional disarmament tool and may help create conditions for more comprehensive disarmament measures. New publication Algorithmic Bias and the Weaponization of Increasingly Autonomous Technologies AI-enabled systems depend on algorithms, but those same algorithms are susceptible to bias.
Algorithmic biases come in many types, arise for a variety of reasons, and require different standards and techniques for mitigation. This primer characterizes algorithmic biases, explains their potential relevance for decision-making by autonomous weapons systems, and raises key questions about the impacts of and possible responses to these biases.
