Daniel Högsta

Daniel Högsta is the Interim Executive Director of the International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons (ICAN), the 2017 Nobel Peace Prize-winning campaign coalition that works to prohibit and eliminate nuclear weapons.

Previously, Högsta was the Campaign Coordinator of ICAN. In the period which culminated in the negotiations of the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons (TPNW), Högsta coordinated advocacy efforts for ICAN and was responsible for generating awareness, understanding and support among governments for the "Humanitarian Initiative" and for the concept of a new treaty to ban nuclear weapons. Since 2018, Daniel’s work focused on supporting the work of ICAN partners to garner political support for the Treaty in “nuclear umbrella” state contexts, as well as on broadening the community of stakeholders that champion the TPNW.
