PICS Career Event. Nuclear Nonproliferation and Arms Control: Challenges, Opportunities, and Careers

Sarah Bidgood, Director of the Eurasia Nonproliferation Program, James Martin Center for Nonproliferation Studies, Monterey, California
Tuesday, October 26, 2021
12:00-1:00 PM
Off Campus Location
The international community faces no shortage of challenges when it comes to preventing the spread of nuclear weapons. The crisis in US-Russia relations, the slow pace of nuclear disarmament, the future of North Korea’s nuclear weapons program, and the emergence of new technologies with military applications–these are just a few of the issues that nuclear policy professionals are working to address today. Each of these problems will require creative ideas and novel methodological approaches to surmount. This talk will highlight different opportunities and career paths for students who may wish to contribute to this process. It will focus in particular on the need for greater diversity, including gender diversity, among experts and practitioners in this field. All students, regardless of their level of knowledge of nonproliferation, disarmament, or arms control, are welcome to attend. Questions are strongly encouraged!

Please note: This session will be held virtually EST through Zoom. This webinar is free and open to students, but registration is required. Once you've registered the joining information will be sent to your email.
