But all is not lost. Over the past five years the case for eliminating nuclear weapons has moved from the fringes to the centre of discourse on international security. Less emphasis is placed on achieving a nuclear-weapon-free world in Russia than when Mikhail Gorbachev was in power, but in the United States a growing body of influential opinion is outspoken in favouring total nuclear disarmament if this can be achieved. Pugwash played a role in creating this climate of possibility. While not much progress seems likely for the moment, it is the responsibility of those in Pugwash, and the many organizations sharing the same objectives, to continue to engage in constructive work through what admittedly is proving to be a difficult period.

One of the immediate beneficial effects of such a no first use treaty would be to alleviate 35 tensions in East Asia deriving from the nuclear guarantee extended by the United States to Japan and South Korea, and to open the way to creating a nuclear-weapon-free zone in the region. In the longer term, general agreement on no first use opens the way, in logic at least, to a nuclear-weapon-free world.
One initiative - the "SIrUS" project - seeks to define the phrase "superfluous injury or unnecessary suffering": weapons which produce superfluous injury and unnecessary suffering are currently prohibited under international humanitarian law. In another, the ICRC has been commissioned by the 26lh International Conference of the Red Cross and Red Crescent to examine the extent to which the availability of weapons is contributing to the proliferation and aggravation of violations of international humanitarian law.
