THE NUCLEAR TRUTH PROJECT
Rights, Respect, and Reciprocity
Protocols for Seeking Nuclear Truth with Integrity
We recognise protocols as being understandings of how individuals, organisations and communities stay in right relationship with each other, building respectful, reciprocal, and intentional relationships. Protocols help us prepare ourselves and our spaces. They help centre the lived experience of those communities in the processes to redress harm. These protocols aim to protect the vulnerable, shield from further trauma and harm, and ensure nuclear justice is centred in the work to redress both historic and any future harms from nuclear activities.
We advocate that those working towards nuclear truth and nuclear justice within, alongside or in relation to victims/survivors, First Nations and Indigenous Peoples and affected communities should undertake to consider and establish practices that follow these basic protocols:
The Nuclear Truth Project Protocols are now in active consultation with Indigenous Peoples, affected community members and allies.
A full version of these protocols can be read from our Working Paper submitted to the UN Meeting of States Parties in June 2022 here.
Please feel free to share this link with your organization or networks, and to consider a formal sign-on to adapt or adopt the Protocols as a tool in your work. If you have comments or concerns, please use our Consultation Survey. For further information please contact us.
