- The 2015 Review Conference of the Non-Proliferation Treaty failed to reach any consensus. The issues which gave rise to tensions in 2015 have not been resolved, with the inherent risk that the next Review Conference will fail as well. Three options are presented here to increase the possibilities for the 2020 Review Conference to succeed. First, it could be discussed whether the traditional focus on one final consensus document at the end of a Review Conference can be changed, so that tensions on certain topics do not block everything else as well. Second, new explorations are required to solve the deadlock on the aim to establish a WMD-Free Zone in the Middle East. Third, the nuclear weapons states should show more willingness in accelerating their disarmament efforts, for which some smaller and bigger steps are identified.
Challenges to the NPT
Less focus on a final consensus document
Consultations or working group on the Middle East
More efforts towards disarmament
