Governance In An Emerging New World: Emerging Technology And Nuclear Non-Proliferation

Tuesday, November 5, 2019
Hauck Auditorium, Hoover Institution, Stanford University

The existential threat posed by nuclear weapons is unique, and states have continuously managed that risk across decades of profound global change. How might changing global demographics and emerging 21st-century technologies redefine the nature of nuclear weapons proliferation and their use? Leaders from the Nuclear Threat Initiative will explore potential impacts on nuclear proliferation challenges and on counter-proliferation strategies, and panelists will consider the particular risks in the India-Pakistan nuclear standoff

The Hoover Institution hosts a public panel discussion "Emerging Technology and Nuclear Non-Proliferation" on Tuesday, November 5, 2019 from 4:00pm - 5:15pm PST. The event will be livestreamed and can be viewed below.
