RESOURCE:

Australia’s cross-party legacy on treaties

There is a proud bipartisan history of Australia joining disarmament, arms control, and nuclear security treaties.

Australia has joined almost every applicable universal and regional arms control and disarmament agreement at this time, with the exception of the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons (TPNW), which opened for signature in New York on 20 Sep 2017.

This new resource, Australia: Disarmament, Arms Control and Nuclear Security Treaties recounts Australia’s bipartisan history of leadership under both the Labor and Coalition governments, highlighting multiple examples of treaties that were signed by a Coalition government and ratified by a Labor government, and vice versa.
