Foreign affairs adviser to discuss nuclear weapons Feb. 2 at BYU

Kerry M. Kartchner, foreign affairs advisor at the Defense Threat Reduction Agency in the U.S. Advanced Systems and Concepts Office, will discuss nuclear weapons at noon Wednesday, Feb. 2 in 238 Herald R. Clark Building at Brigham Young University.

Kartchner's lecture, "Nuclear Weapons and the Future of U.S. National Security: The Emerging Debate" reflects his more than 20 years of experience in the field of national security affairs and his emphasis on nuclear weapons policy and arms control.

Upon completion of his assignment, Kartchner will resume duties as the senior advisor for missile defense policy in the Bureau of Arms Control at the U.S. Department of State.

In May 2003, Kartchner co-chaired a conference at the Milton A. Barlow Center in Washington D.C. for Latter-day Saint national security professionals

This lecture will be archived online. For information on Kennedy Center events, see the calendar and News and Events online at http://kennedy.byu.edu.
