Blue Banner is a Mongolian non-governmental organization established in 2005 to promote nuclear non-proliferation and Mongolia's initiative to turn the country into a nuclear-weapon-free zone (NWFZ).Blue Banner is independent from the government or any of its agencies and does not depend on nor receive instruction or any financial support from the government. It believes that the government of Mongolia needs to promote more vigorously the policy of establishing and institutionalizing the concept of the single-State NWFZ. It also believes that independent NGOs and think tanks can make useful practical suggestions to the government on the ways and means of promoting the initiative, including the form and content of the future zone. To that end it undertakes special area studies and presents its findings and recommendations to the general public or the government as the case may be. It also organizes national and regional meetings to promote its goals.In 2014 Blue Banner was invited by the International Parliamentary Union (IPU), the Parliamentarians for Nuclear Non-Proliferation and Disarmament (PNND) and the World Future Council (WFC) to share Mongolia's experience in successfully promoting its unique nuclear-weapon-free status, considered as an inspiring example of creatively addressing the issues of nuclear non-proliferation.In 2015, Blue Banner together with GPPAC launched the Ulaanbaatar Process, a civil society dialogue for peace and stability in Northeast Asia.
