Cambridge, MA – Former Secretary of Defense Ashton B. Carter will join the Harvard Kennedy School as the Belfer Professor of Technology and Global Affairs and Director of the Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs. As Secretary of Defense, Carter, a physicist, became known for pushing the Pentagon to “think outside its five-sided box” in order to transform the way the military fought adversaries and strengthened alliances, managed its budget and talent, developed its technology, and more. He will now lead the Belfer Center’s programs and will focus his scholarship on the role of innovation and technology in addressing challenges at home and around the world.
Joyce Connery, Director for Nuclear Threat Reduction and Nuclear Energy Cooperation in the Office of the WMD Coordinator at the National Security Council, will present a Nuclear Nonproliferation Practitioners Seminar entitled "A Discussion on Nuclear Threat Reduction," on Monday December 21, beginning at 10:30am in the Belfer Center Library.
All are welcome and invited to attend.
