*EVENT CANCELED*: Lessons from the Hawaii Nuclear Missile Scare

Due to inclement weather, federal offices are closed and this event has been canceled.

This event is co-sponsored by the Nuclear Proliferation International History Project.

Against the backdrop of escalating tension with North Korea and unraveling U.S.-Russia nuclear treaties, the January 2018 Hawaii false missile alert came as a shocking reminder of the reality of a nuclear threat. Cynthia Lazaroff and Bruce Allyn experienced the alert firsthand, which drove home the importance of their research and interviews with leading Russian and American nuclear experts. They will share their findings and some possible steps to reduce today’s nuclear danger.
