A Weapons of Mass Destruction Free Zone in the Middle East: Toward Regional Cooperation and Peace

Join our partners Middle East Treaty Organization (METO) and the International Peace Bureau (IPB) for an event that will provide a unique opportunity to learn about the history of METO’s work and their future plans, particularly in relation to the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) and the vision for the future of the region.

METO’s vision is to establish a peaceful, integrated, and thriving Middle East built on human and environmental security. As a coalition of civil society activists and practitioners, METO seeks to rid the Middle East of all weapons of mass destruction, using this as a gateway toward regional security and peace. They advance their goals through policy, advocacy, and educational programs.


  • Sharon Dolev, Founder and Executive Director of METO and Council Member of IPB;
  • Emad Kiyaei, Director of METO.
  • Asmaa Guedira, Women’s Environment Leadership

The event will be moderated by Sean Conner, IPB Executive Director, who will lead a Q&A session at the end of the presentations.

WHEN: Friday, June 7, 12:00pm EST (4:00pm UTC)

WHERE: IPB Berlin Headquarters, Marienstr. 19-20, 10117 Berlin or online via Zoom.
