"Center Community Informs Upcoming Global Nuclear Summit"

Newsletter Article, Belfer Center Newsletter

By Sharon Wilke, Associate Director of Communications

"In July, 2009, President Obama announced the first Global Nuclear Summit to 'develop steps that can be taken together to secure vulnerable materials, combat nuclear smuggling and deter, detect, and disrupt attempts at nuclear terrorism.' ... Because the goals and objectives of the summit mirror a long-time focus and effort of the Belfer Center, it is not surprising that a number of current and former Center experts are involved in various aspects of summit planning and nuclear terrorism prevention efforts."

"Career Diplomat Marc Grossman to be First Future of Diplomacy Fellow"

Newsletter Article, Belfer Center Newsletter

By Sharon Wilke, Associate Director of Communications

"At a time when most major challenges facing the international community cannot be resolved by military force, nations will need to rely more on their ability to negotiate, communicate, and resolve differences through diplomacy. In response to this need, the Belfer Center is completing plans for a full-scale program-the Future of Diplomacy Project-that will make diplomacy a major focus of the School's teaching and research. This month, Professor of the Practice of Diplomacy and International Politics Nicholas Burns, who will head the new effort, announced Ambassador Marc Grossman as the first Future of Diplomacy Fellow."

"Q&A with Henry Lee and Kelly Sims Gallagher"

Newsletter Article, Belfer Center Newsletter

By Sharon Wilke, Associate Director of Communications

As the U.S. debates an economy-wide CO2 cap-and-trade policy, the transportation sector remains a significant oil security and climate change concern. A new Belfer Center study-"Analysis of Policies to Reduce Oil Consumption and Greenhouse Gas Emissions from the U.S. Transportation Sector"-concludes that significant reductions in these areas will require much stronger policy initiatives than are currently under  consideration. Two of the authors answer questions about their report. Henry Lee is director of the Belfer Center's Environment and Natural Resources Program and Kelly Sims Gallagher is senior associate of the  Belfer Center and associate professor of energy and environmental policy at Fletcher School, Tufts University's graduate school of international affairs.
