Why Germany should support the TPNW

As a feminist organisation, CFFP prioritises (nuclear) disarmament. In September 2021, CFFP collaborated with ICAN to publish the policy brief “How the Next German Government Can Support the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons.” Despite not being a signatory, the brief explored ways Germany could back the TPNW. CFFP engaged with members of Greens, CDU/CSU, FDP, SPD, and the Left, including youth organisations, to pressure political actors. On December 7, 2021, the new German government signed a coalition deal, intending to observe the Conference of the Parties to the TPNW in Vienna in March 2022 while remaining an EU and NATO partner. A result from persistent advocacy by feminist civil society, including CFFP’s extensive project efforts and discussions with delegates in the field.
