While the dangers of nuclear holocaust have diminished since the end of the Cold War, the threat of proliferation and the risk of nuclear weapons use have increased.

In response to these dangers, former U.S. Secretary of Defense William Perry and other former senior national security officials have declared their support for a world without nuclear weapons.

Perry and Cardinal Roger Mahony, archbishop emeritus of Los Angeles, will address the ethical challenges posed by nuclear policy Oct. 25 (Tuesday) at 4:15 p.m., at the Hesburgh Center for International Studies at the University of Notre dame. This event is free and open to the public.

It also will be live streamed from the Hesburgh Center auditorium and can be viewed online by clicking here.

This event is sponsored by the Notre Dame’s Kroc Institute for International Peace Studies, Reilly Center for Science, Technology and Values, and Center for Social Concerns.
