Nuclear Security: A Vital Goal But a Distant Prospect
Series: Project on Managing the Atom Seminar Series
Open to the Public - Fainsod Room, Littauer-324
February 17, 2016
|Speaker:||Jeffrey H. Smith|
POSTPONED: This event was postponed from an earlier date due to weather.
Pulitzer-prize winning, veteran journalist R. Jeffrey Smith has just completed a two-year investigation into the global effort to control nuclear weapons and the materials that could be used to make them. With colleagues at the Center for Public Integrity in Washington, he published thirty articles about the risks posed by inadequately secured nuclear material around the world (the articles appeared in publications ranging from The Washington Post to Foreign Policy, from Stars and Stripes to NBC News). At this seminar, Smith will distill the lessons he believes should be drawn from setbacks in the continuing U.S. campaign to control one of the world’s most serious threats.
