Briefing on the Marshall Islands' ICJ Cases
with Professor Nick Grief, a member of the Marshall Islands' Legal Team
6:00pm, 24th September
Friends House, 173-177 Euston Road, London NW1 2BJ

On 24 April 2014, the Republic of the Marshall Islands took the nine nuclear-armed States to the International Court of Justice claiming they are in violation of their nuclear disarmament obligations. This tiny Pacific nation’s firsthand experience with the transgenerational devastation of the 67 nuclear tests conducted there compelled it to take a stand.

Together with Quaker Peace & Social Witness, the World Future Council is organising the briefing of the case at at Friends House in London. The briefing comes at an opportune time, just two days before the inaugural International Day for the Total Elimination of Nuclear Weapons.

Please confirm your attendance to rob.vanriet@worldfuturecouncil.org
