This research aims to investigate the influence of NGOs on International political issues, and to determine the nature of roles they can play by studying the roles played by NGO in working to mobilize world public opinion for nuclear disarmament to achieve a nuclear- weapons- free world.  The research is distinguished by the diversity of the organizations it deals with, as well as the diversity of activities it observes, in addition to the comparisons it makes between the code of ethics of NGOs and the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons (TPNW). This research also reviews the most important events held by NGOs to demand dismantling nuclear weapons in the world, whether by raising awareness of the risks of using nuclear weapons, or by influencing international decision- making, and diplomatic efforts exerted by these organizations. The research gives an objective comparison between the intellectual premises on which the treaty (TPNW) was based, as stated in the preamble to the treaty, and the code of ethics of the NGOs working on nuclear weapons disarmament. The study ends with conclusions affirming that these organizations were key factors in the treaty TPNW, and it clarifies the nature of their roles and the results they achieved.
