Protecting the Nation From Clandestine Introduction of Fissionable Material
Monday, May 7th, 5:00-6:30pm, GSPP 105
PP290-7 Nuclear Security: The Nexus Between Policy and Technology
Clandestine introduction of fissionable materials could result in a nuclear detonation or widespread deposition of radioactive fission products anywhere in the nation’s territory. Confronting this complex threat requires the application of technical expertise that is policy oriented. This semester a team of Berkeley graduate students from the Department of Nuclear Engineering, and the Goldman School of Public Policy worked with several visiting international scholars to analyze the problem and propose comprehensive policy alternatives.
Please come join us to learn from the presentation of the team’s policy briefing, and to engage them with your questions and responses.
PIZZA and soft drinks will be served.
