The 2017 Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons (TPNW) is the first multilateral treaty to comprehensively ban nuclear weapons, including their development, deployment, possession, use and threat of use.1 Having entered into force on 22 January 2021, the treaty required the United Nations secretary-general to convene a meeting of states parties (MSP) within one year.2 The first MSP (1MSP) was thus initially to take place in January 2022, but it was twice postponed beyond the one-year deadline due to the Covid‑19 pandemic and to avoid overlap with other major meetings.3 The meeting was eventually held on 21–23 June 2022 in Vienna.
