Nuclear Arms Control in the Middle East and South Asia
Professor Chomsky, widely acknowledged as one of America's leading 
public intellectuals, will discuss nuclear weapons in the Middle East 
and the prospects for a Nuclear Weapon Free Zone.

Despite the end of the Cold War over two decades ago, nuclear weapons 
continue to be at the center of debates that dominate international 
relations today. Yet, the search for a world without nuclear weapons 
remains as elusive as ever.

Thousands of strategic nuclear weapons remain in the arsenals of the US 
and Russia and hundreds of tactical nuclear weapons are still deployed 
in Europe without any rationale. The presence of nuclear weapons real or 
perceived threaten peace in other parts of the world.
