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 RSVP to this event at: http://myumi.ch/R5NVM by Friday, October 4th.

Sarah Bidgood is the director of the Eurasia Nonproliferation Program at the James Martin Center for Nonproliferation Studies in Monterey, California. She also leads the Center’s Young Women in Nonproliferation Initiative. Much of her work focuses on identifying opportunities to revive US-Russia nonproliferation cooperation and arms control today. She is the co-editor of Once and Future Partners: The United States, Russia, and Nuclear Nonproliferation, which was published in 2018.
