About the discussion and Senators Lugar & Nunn

This moderated discussion with Senator Lugar of Indiana and Senator Nunn of Georgia will examine current threats around the world posed by weapons of mass destruction—nuclear, chemical, and biological—and explore how the Senators' framework for cooperative threat reduction can reduce these dangers and continue to inform world diplomacy.

The Nunn-Lugar Cooperative Threat Reduction Program, which became law in 1992, is credited with deactivating more than 7,600 nuclear warheads that were once aimed at the United States.

Lugar, who represented Indiana in the U.S. Senate from 1977 to 2013, is president of the Lugar Center in Washington, D.C., and a distinguished professor at UIndy, home of the Richard G. Lugar Academy.

Nunn represented Georgia in the U.S. Senate from 1972 to 1996 and currently serves as co-chairman and chief executive officer of the D.C.-based Nuclear Threat Initiative.

Thank you to our sponsor!
