Panels on the media and civil society discussed the challenges in and tools for reporting about and promoting the CTBT.

The symposium comprised online e-learning modules and a two-week long live seminar-style symposium to be held in Vienna and streamed online. Topics included nuclear testing and the arms race, the CTBT’s role in the nuclear non-proliferation regime, and multilateral arms control and verification - see content overview.
