Global Peace and Insecurity: An MIT Seminar Series
Fall 2020: Tuesdays: 12noon-1:30pm US EDT (12-13.30)
The world is facing an unprecedented crisis on several fronts. Lack of leadership by the United States has intensified many flash points around the world including nuclear threats and the abandonment of arms control negotiations, bio-safety, climate change, food insecurity, instability and tensions in the East, and increased pressure from nationalists and extremists at home and abroad. This seminar will capture a subset of these critical issues facing humanity and the planet. All programs will require pre-registration. Please check each program for registration link.

Seminar Organizer and Moderator: SUBRATA GHOSHROY, Research Affiliate, MIT'S PROGRAM IN SCIENCE, TECHNOLOGY AND SOCIETY. GO HERE for a recent paper by Mr. Ghoshroy published in the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists that examines American Congressional bipartisan support of missile defense.
