This lecture underlines the special character of nuclear weapons and discusses the desirability and the feasibility of a nuclear-weapon-free world. In addition to addressing some past activities that worked to promote nuclear disarmament and the transition to a nuclear-weapon-free world, the lecture also covers the significant developments initiated by the January 2007 Wall Street Journal op-ed coauthored by Shultz, Perry, Kissinger, and Nunn, which culminated in the April 2009 Prague speech by President Obama.
