Join MTA to learn more about what this portends and what might be yet done to head it off from former Department of Defense Deputy for Nonproliferation Policy Henry Sokolski of the Nonproliferation Policy Education Center. The Belfer Center's Will Tobey will moderate this seminar.
Both Tobey and Sokolski will have just returned from a series of discussions on these issues with senior Chinese and Japanese officials in Beijing and Tokyo.
This event is open to the public. Coffee and tea provided.
