Underestimated: Our Not So Peaceful Nuclear Future
Henry D. Sokolski
Executive Director, Nonproliferation Policy Education Center
Thursday, November 14
Three schools of thought shape our current nuclear policies: Arms control professionals, nuclear "hawks," and academic realists. Mr. Sokolski's presentation will examine what each of these schools think, assess how adequate their analyses are, and suggest what yet needs to be considered if we are avoid future nuclear proliferation and use.
