The American Security Project (ASP) invites you to:  

Nuclear Terrorism: What’s at Stake?

Wednesday, May 29, 2013 from 8:00am until 9:30am
Location: 1100 New York Avenue, 7th Floor West Tower

Washington, DC, 20005


The U.S. is a leader in global nonproliferation efforts, from preventing new nuclear states to securing nuclear materials and technology. However, preventing nuclear terror also requires efforts on a domestic front. U.S. ports present a potential vulnerability and securing these ports requires improvement in the capacity to detect and secure nuclear materials that could arrive in shipping containers.

Join us for a conversation with:

The Honorable Jay M. Cohen (R. Admiral, USN, Retired), Principal of The Chertoff Group and Former Undersecretary for Science and Technology-Department of Homeland Security 

David Waller, Former Deputy Director General of the International Atomic Energy Agency and former Assistant Secretary of Energy for International Affairs 

Dr. Stephen E. Flynn, Professor and Founding Co-Director of the George J. Kostas Research Institute for Homeland Security at Northeastern University and Former President of the Center for National Policy.

Dr. Stanton D. Sloane, President & CEO, Decision Sciences International Corporation

Brigadier General Stephen A. Cheney, USMC (Ret.), ASP CEO (Moderator)

Breakfast Refreshments will be served between 0730-0800 a.m.
