Join us for an evening with Steven David, as we dive into the threat of nuclear proliferation. During this talk, Dr. David will focus on the threat posed by nuclear proliferation with a special emphasis on Iran. We will explore the reasons that countries seek to develop nuclear weapons, how they might do so, and the American non-proliferation policy. Together, we will consider the issue of nuclear terrorism, with special emphasis on American efforts preventing Iran from becoming a nuclear weapons state.
