Civil society continues to pursue new challenges

After the succesful campaign on the Arms Trade Treaty, civil society continues to stand up for new challenges. We highlight three international campaigns worth supporting:

Stop Killer Robots: International coalition of NGOs working to ban fully autonomous weapons. The campaign seeks to prohibit taking a human 'out-of-the-loop' with respect to targeting and attack decisions on the battlefield. The Campaign calls for a pre-emptive and comprehensive ban on the development, production, and use of fully autonomous weapons. They claim this could be achieved through new international law, as well as through national laws and other measures.The Catalan NGO La Fundació per la Pau is amongst the members of the coalition.

International Network on Explosive Weapons (INEW): This international network calls for immediate action to prevent human suffering from the use of explosive weapons in populated areas. The coalition members undertake, amongst others, research and advocacy to promote greater understanding of the issue and concrete steps that can be taken to address it. Up to now there are no Catalan NGOs participating in the campaign. More information at:

International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons (ICANW): A global campaign coalition working to mobilize people worldwide to inspire, persuade and pressure their governments to initiate and support negotiations for a treaty banning nuclear weapons. In Spain two organizations are participating in this campaign: the Spanish Medical Association for the prevention of Nuclear War and the Catalan NGO La Fundació per la Pau. More information at:
