Discussion and Reception 

Join nuclear experts and Washington insiders Jon Wolfsthal and Joe Cirincione as they discuss the current administration’s opportunities and challenges in addressing nuclear threats.  Over more than three decades, the world saw a steady reduction in the number of nuclear weapons.  But now nuclear threats are on the rise – such as the danger of miscalculation with North Korea, a potential arms race with Russia, and more.  With so much at stake, what can we do?

Tickets are $20 and include hors d’oeurves and beer/wine during the reception. 

Joe Cirincione is President of Ploughshares Fund, a global peace and security foundation working to eliminate nuclear weapons. He is a member of the Council on Foreign Relations and was a member of Secretary of State John Kerry’s International Security Advisory Board. He teaches at the graduate School of Foreign Service at Georgetown University.

Jon Wolfsthal is the former Special Assistant to the President for National Security Affairs and senior director at the National Security Council for arms control and nonproliferation. Before that, he was Deputy Director of the James Martin Center for Nonproliferation Studies at the Middlebury Institute for International Studies in Monterey. Previously, he was Special Advisor to Vice President Joe Biden for nuclear security and nonproliferation and was a director for nonproliferation on the National Security Council from 2009-2012.
