Database of TPNW articles, books, chapters, reports and videos

This spreadsheet contains details of journal articles, books, book chapters and NGO reports directly, or very closely, related to the 'humanitarian initiative on nuclear weapons' (HINW) and the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons (TPNW). You can sort the columns by author, year, title and so on and you can search the site using key words in the usual way.

It is intended as a living resource to bring together the rich body of research, thinking and argument that has emerged on this initiative from the late 2000s onwards.

The database was compiled in May 2021. The 'Date added' column records the month new materials published since May 2021 were added. I will post details of new publications @DrNickRitchie.

The NGO/think tank reports all have links. The journal articles have links to abstracts, but the majority are behind paywalls. However, quite a few are available through www.researchgate.net and the vast majority of authors here will, I'm sure, be willing to forward a pdf if asked.

I have included in this collection materials that connect nuclear weapons to gender, post-colonialism, and human and environmental harms in the context of the HINW and TPNW, whilst noting that these themes have a much longer heritage than the period covered here from the late 2000s onwards. I have not included the very many short commentary pieces that have been published over the years.

The materials are all English-language. If you know of good non-English materials, please send me the details with a translation of the title.

P.S.

I draw your attention in the first instance to two prescient pieces that I think first captured the thinking that underpinned the the HINW and that all important paragraph in the 2010 NPT Review Conference Final Document, which said "The Conference expresses its deep concern at the catastrophic humanitarian consequences of any use of nuclear weapons and reaffirms the need for all States at all times to comply with applicable international law, including international humanitarian law."
