David Sanger to keynote at the James Timbie Forum on Arms Control and Nonproliferation

By | July 12, 2016

The Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists is pleased to announce our participation in the James Timbie Forum for Arms Control and Nonproliferation in Washington, DC. We’ll be hosting the morning session this Friday, July 15th; David Sanger of the New York Times will give a keynote address entitled: Communicating National Security.

A panel discussion, The expert journalist interface: How your research can reach a wide general audience, will follow Sanger’s keynote address. The panel features Bulletin editor John Mecklin, Washington Examiner senior national security writer Jamie McIntyre, and Science and Security Board member Sharon Squassoni (Center for Strategic and International Studies).

The James Timbie Forum is dedicated to fostering new voices and new ideas on nuclear policy. The Forum is named for James Timbie, a forty-year veteran of the US State Department and a key player in the formation or implementation of virtually every important arms control and nonproliferation effort that occurred during his tenure.

The Forum is open to the public and is part of the Nuclear Policy Talks series at the Institute for Security and Conflict Studies, part of the Elliott School of International Affairs at George Washington University (GWU). The first day of the Forum will be held on July 14th at the US State Department; the second day of the Forum will be held at the Harry Harding Auditorium at GWU.

Please see the Forum webpage for more details, and RSVP here. For more information about the Bulletin’s morning session on July 15th, please contact Paige Bonk, the Bulletin’s Outreach and Development Manager, at [email protected]
