The Prospects for a Nuclear Weapons Free Zone in the Middle East
Speaker: Noam Chomsky, MIT
Location: MIT Building-Room 10-250
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.
