Carnegie Council's U.S. Global Engagement Program and the Kroc Institute for International Peace Studies at the University of Notre Dame are hosting this panel on nuclear deterrence.
This distinguished panel will address the policy, religious, and ethical implications of nuclear capabilities. The discussion is especially timely since it coincides with the Non-Proliferation Treaty Review Conference and reflects on the major statements issued by the Holy See at the Vienna Conference about nuclear weapons last December.
The event is in conjunction with the Nuclear Threat Initiative; the Office of International Justice and Peace of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops; the Berkley Center for Religion, Peace, and World Affairs at Georgetown; Boston College; and America magazine.
His Excellency, The Most Reverend Bernardito C. Auza is permanent observer of the Holy See to the United Nations and to the Organization of American States. He is also Titular Archbishop of Suacia and Apostolic Nuncio of Haiti.
Lord Browne of Ladyton (Des Browne) is vice chairman of the Nuclear Threat Initiative and a British Labour Party politician who was the Member of Parliament for Kilmarnock and Loudoun from 1997 to 2010.
