International Commission on Nuclear Non-proliferation and Disarmament [website]   [open html - 17KB]

"The International Commission on Nuclear Non-proliferation and Disarmament is a joint initiative of the Australian and Japanese Governments. It aims to reinvigorate international efforts on nuclear non-proliferation and disarmament, in the context of both the 2010 Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty Review Conference, and beyond. Australian Prime Minister Kevin Rudd proposed the Commission on the 9 June 2008, in Kyoto, to be co-chaired by former Australian Foreign Minister Gareth Evans. On 9 July, Prime Minister Rudd and Japanese Prime Minister Yasuo Fukuda agreed to establish the Commission and announced that former Japanese Foreign Minister Yoriko Kawaguchi would co-chair the Commission. Research papers specially commissioned as background material for the work of the International Commission on Nuclear Non-proliferation and Disarmament are being progressively made available online."
