ACDIS is hosting our first annual lecture in memory of former director, Jeremiah Sullivan. This year, Dr. Jürgen Scheffran, a professor from the University of Hamburg, will be giving a lecture on ICAN, the recipient of the 2017 Nobel Peace Prize. ICAN played a major role in the signing of The Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons, which is currently backed by 122 states. Dr. Scheffran and millions of people around the world who participated in the ICAN movement have seen a breakthrough in the ratification of this treaty by numerous states. Each ratification shows that the world is slowly uniting against the threat nuclear weapons poses to society and the security risks WMD hold.
We welcome everyone to come to this lecture to hear this discussion! This event will take place prior to the graduation ceremony that we offer for our outgoing ACDIS certificate students. We look forward to seeing you all there!
