Discussion: Nuclear Security Summit

Six years after US President Barack Obama declared his goal of ridding the world of nuclear weapons, world leaders are gathered in Washington for this year’s Nuclear Security Summit. Key topics include the growing threat of nuclear weapons falling into terrorist hands and the DPRK nuclear crisis. With some countries actually increasing their nuclear stockpiles, has Obama failed or have we seen real progress as evidenced by the Iran nuclear deal? And how significant is the threat of nuclear attack by terrorists? Join us for a discussion of this vital issue with Mr. Zhao Tong, associate in Carnegie’s Nuclear Policy Program based at the Carnegie–Tsinghua Center for Global Policy; Mr. Michael O’Hanlon, senior fellow with the Center for 21st Century Security and Intelligence and director of research for the Foreign Policy program at the Brookings Institution; and Ms. Eunjung Lim, lecturer of Korea Studies at the Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies.
