Perry, Cardinal Mahony to Address Ethics of a World without Nuclear Weapons

Author: Renée LaReau

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 at 4:15 p.m., October 25 (Tuesday), at the Hesburgh Center for International Studies. This event is free and open to the public.

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