Nuclear Abolition Day Event – University of Auckland

October 5, 2017 @ 5:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Please join us on Thursday 5th October at 5.30pm at the University of Auckland for our Nuclear Abolition Day event, a partnership between the Peace Foundation, the Public Policy Institute and the University of Auckland Public Policy Club.
Title: Investigating the New Zealand Government stance on nuclear disarmament promotion
Venue: University of Auckland – Owen G Glenn Building, Room 260-040B


5.30pm – Roundtable discussion between panelists and the audience:

  • Richard Northey
  • Lyndon Burford
  • Lucy Stewart
  • Jake Bransgrove
  • Tamkeen Saeid
  • Samuditha Rupasinghe

6.30pm – NZ Premier screening of Where the Wind Blew (Kazakh film on effects of nuclear weapons)

The event is being held as part of a threefold commemoration of Nuclear Abolition Day (Sep 26th), the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons (adopted July 7, 2017, opened for signature Sep 20th 2017), and thirty years of New Zealand being nuclear-free. Its focus will be on how the New Zealand government has advanced the cause of nuclear disarmament in its domestic activities since 1987, and what steps it is currently taking to further or maintain this cause, it being enshrined in law at both national and international levels, and how we could do better. We welcome a range of viewpoints and a lively discussion.

We do hope that you can join us and please spread the word to your networks.
