Dr Johnson’s chapter, titled ‘The Nuclear Ban Treaty and Humanitarian Strategies to Eliminate Nuclear Threats’, assesses the 2017 TPNW one year on and answers criticisms from US-UK arms controllers who have branded the Ban Treaty dangerous, while justifying the nuclear weapons programmes of their own governments and a handful of others.
