Historical Background
The NGO Committee on Disarmament was established in June 1973 by a group of international NGOs (non-governmental organizations). The organization had petitioned the New York Bureau of the Conference of NGOs in Consultative Status with the U.N. Economic and Social Council to form a Committee on Disarmament at U.N. headquarters. This new Committee would be parallel to the Special NGO Committee on Disarmament in Geneva, Switzerland. The purposes of the organization were: 1. to bring interested NGOs together to discuss current disarmament negotiations and potential progress; 2. to relate the programs of NGOs to current U.N. disarmament goals; 3. to monitor work in the U.N. on the economic and social consequences of disarmament; 4. to coordinate NGO liaison with various organs and units of the U.N. involved in disarmament; and 5. to cooperate closely with the Special NGO Committee on Disarmament at Geneva.
