The landmark Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons (TPNW) was opened for signature on 20 September 2017 after a relatively short period of negotiation. The treaty is the first legally binding international agreement to comprehensively prohibit the development, deployment or use of nuclear weapons, with the ultimate goal of their total elimination. As such, it marks the culmination of an international movement to establish a normative and legal basis for banning nuclear weapons. As of 31 December 2017, the TPNW had been signed by 56 states and ratified by 3.1 The treaty will enter into force 90 days after 50 states have ratified it.
