Oslo ends on a high

March 5, 2013

The Oslo conference has ended in something close to euphoria, with a very clear and strong summary from Norwegian Foreign Minister Eide, and an offer from Mexico to host a followup conference that build upon the new humanitarian perspective that has come to define the nuclear weapons issue for the State and civil society participants here. ICAN’s role was recognized and applauded by the chair and by numerous delegations, and outside the hotel was one of the first demonstrations I’ve seen in a long time thanking Norway and the other States for what they’ve accomplished here, rather than protesting something. I’m holding up a dinner celebration, so will post this now and write something more reflective later.
