“Do Nuclear Weapons Promote Peace?” is BYU lecture topic Dec. 5

“Do Nuclear Weapons Promote Peace?” will be the topic of a Global Awareness Lecture on Wednesday, Dec. 5, at noon in 238 Herald R. Clark Building on the Brigham Young University campus.

The lecturer, Robert Rauchhaus, has taught political science at the University of California, Santa Barbara, since 2003. His research and teaching interests include international relations theory, American foreign policy, counter-terrorism and national security policy.

Rauchhaus’ expertise in national security policy stems from his academic training as well as practical experience gained from military service, law enforcement, and work in the defense industry.

Prior to joining the faculty at UCSB, Rauchhaus was a management consultant with McKinsey and Company Inc. and a post-doctoral fellow at the Center of International Studies at Princeton University. He received his bachelor’s, master’s and doctorate in political science from the University of California, Berkeley.

This lecture will be archived online. For more information on David M. Kennedy Center events, see the calendar online at kennedy.byu.edu.
