The Women in Power Conference will provide an outlet for students and professionals to explore, discuss, and debate important issues relating to the advancement of women in leadership by facilitating a thoughtful dialogue between the Harvard Kennedy School community and top thought leaders and practitioners.

The topic of creating a pipeline for women to secure well-earned leadership positions has never been more relevant. Our conference theme, “Women in Power: Rise. Challenge. Thrive.”, will focus on uniting diverse perspectives and experiences relating to women in leadership positions. The conference will emphasize the need for an inclusive and productive dialogue, opening the conversation to women with diverse personal and professional experiences as well as allies that advocate for women in leadership.

India and Nuclear Asia: Forces, Doctrine and Dangers

Thu., Apr. 11, 2019 | 12:15pm - 2:00pm

One Brattle Square - Room 350

Speaker: Frank O'Donnell, Postdoctoral Fellow, U.S. Naval War College

The speaker will detail the arguments of his recent book, India and Nuclear Asia: Forces, Doctrine and Dangers. The book explores the post-1998 evolution of Indian nuclear thought, its arsenal, the triangular rivalry with Pakistan and China, and New Delhi's nonproliferation policy approaches. The speaker argues that emerging trends in all three states are elevating risks of regional inadvertent and accidental escalation. These include the forthcoming launch of naval nuclear forces within an environment of contested maritime boundaries; the growing employment of dual-use delivery vehicles; and the emerging preferences of all three states to employ missiles early in a conflict. These dangers are amplified by the near-absence of substantive nuclear dialogue between these states, and the growing ambiguity of regional strategic intentions. To mitigate these trends, the speaker recommends that the three states initiate a trilateral strategic dialogue, and that India institute a strategic defense review to resolve the growing ambiguities around its conventional and nuclear deterrence and improve public confidence in them.

Please join us! Coffee and tea provided. Everyone is welcome, but admittance will be on a first come–first served basis.
