A Journey at the Nuclear Brink

Upcoming Presentation  •  William J. Perry  •  8 May 2013
Posted: 18 April 2013

The Vienna Center for Disarmament and Non-Proliferation (VCDNP) cordially invites you to attend a seminar by Dr. William J. Perry, Stanford University Professor and 19th US Secretary of Defense, titled "A Journey at the Nuclear Brink," which will be held on Wednesday, 8 May 2013, at 13:15 in the conference hall of the Permanent Mission of Japan. Refreshments will be served at 12:45.

During the Cold War, nuclear weapons played a key role in protecting US security. But are they endangering US and global security today? Should we be working to reduce that danger, with the ultimate goal of eliminating nuclear weapons? Six pivotal experiences in his life made Dr. William J. Perry arrive at that decision. In his talk, Dr. Perry will elaborate on lessons about nuclear weapons that he drew from those experiences.
