International Conference on the abolishment of all nuclear weapons in Florence

From October 4th -5th , 2007 an exceptional conference on nuclear disarmament took place in Florence/Italy.

Exceptional because of the organisers: The Max- Planck Institute for History of science in cooperation with the University of Florence and INES and the International Peace Bureau (IPB) as a non-governmental organisations.

Exceptional regarding the agglomeration of professional competence and the combination of interdisciplinary scientific competence – particularly outstanding was surely the discourse between historians and natural scientists - but also the cooperation of activists as well as politicians and “elder statesmen”.

Exceptional was the award of the honorary doctorate, independent but in connection with the conference, to the Director General of the IAEA, the Nobel Peace Price laureate Dr. Mohamed ElBaradei, who highlighted in his laudation the value and importance of the conference.
