Conference: Georgetown University, Berkley Center for Religion, Peace and World Affairs

At the conference, experts will address challenges and solutions to the current crisis in nuclear non-proliferation and disarmament, with reference to Pope Francis’s condemnation of current policies.
Pope Francis, in an address in Hiroshima November 24, 2019, declared that “the use of atomic energy for purposes of war is today, more than ever, a crime not only against the dignity of human beings but against any possible future for our common home.”
This workshop will address the current state of nuclear geopolitics, alternative approaches to nuclear disarmament, and moral and pastoral implications of the Catholic Church’s evolving position on deterrence and nuclear disarmament.
GSI President Jonathan Granoff will be speaking at the event, as will three distinguished members of GSI’s Nonpartisan Security Group , Ambassadors James Goodby and Bonnie Jenkins and Professor David Koplow. RSVP is required.
