What is the significance of nuclear weapons in today’s world? What security challenges do they present, and what steps are being taken to combat these challenges?
Kelsey Davenport, Nonproliferation Analyst at the Arms Control Association in Washington D.C., will offer observations on these questions, on current nuclear security issues, and on the broader field of nuclear nonproliferation based on her international and professional experiences in the field. Davenport‘s work focuses primarily on the nuclear programs of Iran and North Korea, as well as on other nonproliferation issues.
As a Kroc Institute for International Peace Studies alumni, Davenport represents the way in which the multidisciplinary nature of peace studies can lead to a wide variety of career paths. Additionally, she possesses unique insight into the world of nuclear policy, insight that will be extremely valuable to our own GZND chapter members.
The Davenport talk is scheduled for Wednesday, Nov. 5th at 7:00 pm in the Montgomery Auditorium of LaFortune.
Please join us in welcoming Davenport, and reflect on the way in which nuclear weapons both continue to present old threats and simultaneously embody new dangers in the year 2014. To learn more, visit our Facebook page or the Arms Control Association blog.
