May Spotlight Seminar: Nuclear Terrorism-- Did We Beat the Odds or Change Them


Dr. Allison will discuss his recent article for PRISM, NDU's quarterly journal on complex operations. It has been more than 13 years since the publication of Dr. Allison’s book Nuclear Terrorism: the Ultimate Preventable Catastrophe, in which he argued that nuclear terrorism is inevitable if we continue on the current path, but that nuclear terrorism is preventable by an agenda of actions that are feasible and affordable. At our May Spotlight, Dr. Allison will present his latest findings and discuss possible actions that the United States and other nations could take today to reduce this risk and even reverse trend lines moving in the wrong direction.
