As the global community continues to grapple with the coronavirus (COVID-19), the Atlantic Council is open for business. Our business, meetings, and events, however, are occurring virtually. For more information, please read an update from our President and CEO.
A task force, co-chaired by Chuck Hagel, Malcolm Rifkind, and Kevin Rudd, with Ivo Daalder, argues that fraying American alliances and a rapidly changing security environment have shaken America’s nuclear security guarantees and threaten the 50-year-old nuclear nonproliferation regime.
Please join Sec. Chuck Hagel, former US Secretary of Defense; Amb. Ivo H. Daalder, president of the Chicago Council on Global Affairs; Dr. Christopher Ford, former assistant secretary of state for international security and non-proliferation; and Ms. Elaine Bunn, former deputy assistant secretary of defense for nuclear and missile defense policy, for a discussion moderated by Washington Post national security reporter Ms. Missy Ryan on preventing nuclear proliferation, strengthening America’s nuclear security guarantees, and a recent Chicago Council of Global Affairs report on these issues.
This event will take place on Wednesday, April 7, 2021 from 11:00 – 11:45 am EDT.
The event will be entirely virtual, and participants will receive a link to participate via Zoom upon submitting their RSVP. Make your voice heard on Twitter using the hashtag #ACStrategy.
The event is open to the press and on the record.
