Full Event: Science Engagement and WMD Threats

May 15, 2013

When CRDF Global opened its doors in 1995 after the fall of the Soviet Union, our mission was to help ex-Soviet scientists and engineers weather the funding crisis, prevent brain-drain and especially prevent the proliferation of weapons technologies. Eighteen years later, CRDF Global continues to engage in nonproliferation activities through our science engagement and science diplomacy programs. In the 100th Elliott School Nuclear Policy Talk, CRDF Global and representatives of the U.S. government in discuss engagement efforts in the Former Soviet Union, the shift to address these issues globally and the current and future role of science engagement in reducing WMD threats worldwide.
