Forum to spotlight nuclear weapons, terrorism
Nov. 8 event is part of Chancellor’s Forum on Nuclear Danger and Global Survival

31 October 2001 | Experts on the Middle East, Asia, terrorism and international politics will offer a timely discussion of “Nuclear Weapons After Sept. 11: Terrorism, Geo-politics and International Responses” on Thursday, Nov. 8.

Sponsored by the campus’s Institute of International Studies, the event begins at 7 p.m. in Booth Auditorium, Boalt School of Hall. The public is invited to attend.

Guest speakers include:
• Boalt Professor David Caron, an expert in international law;
• Nayan Chanda, director of publications at Yale University’s Center for Globalization;
• Scott Sagan, co-director of the Center for International Security and Cooperation at Stanford University;
• UC San Diego professor Susan Shirk, who served as deputy assistant secretary of the Bureau of East Asian and Pacific Affairs during the Clinton Administration; and
• Shibley Telhami, who holds the Anwar Sadat Chair for Peace and Development at the University of Maryland, College Park.
The discussion is part of an ongoing series — the Chancellor’s Forum on Nuclear Danger and Global Survival — dedicated to the memory of former U.S. Senator Alan Cranston, whose lifelong concern was the control and abolition of nuclear weapons.

The institute has created a Web site — with information on the speakers, background and links on the topic, and a place to e-mail questions to the panelists.
