Delegations

MPI organizes meetings to educate and influence high-level policy makers such as Foreign and Prime Ministers. Formal delegations educate and influence leaders who can have the greatest impact on policy and law making. Delegations are often planned to coincide with pivotal political events. A current emphasis of delegations is to support and strengthen the leadership of the New Agenda Coalition (Brazil, Egypt, Ireland, Mexico, New Zealand, South Africa and Sweden), a coalition which has formally positioned itself as a leading voice for nuclear weapons elimination. Additionally, MPI delegations focus on NATO powers and other middle power countries can have influence the nuclear policies of the nuclear weapon states.
