NUCLEAR WEAPONS IN THE 21ST CENTURY
Rose E. Gottemoeller
Under Secretary for Arms Control and International Security Tuesday, October 21, 2014, 7:00 PM
The Cold War ended over 20 years ago, and for the average American the threat of nuclear war seemed to drift away. But there are still thousands of nuclear weapons around the globe, in addition to bomb-grade nuclear materials that terrorist groups and several states appear intent on acquiring. The threat is real and, in fact, may be increasing. With this in mind, the US Government has reinvigorated efforts to secure and reduce stockpiles of weapons and vulnerable nuclear materials, and to halt the spread of nuclear weapons.
As under secretary, Gottemoeller advises the secretary of state on arms control, nonproliferation and disarmament. She was a senior associate with the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, and served as the director of the Carnegie Moscow Center. Ms. Gottemoeller received a BS from Georgetown University, and a MA from George Washington University, and is fluent in Russian.
