Nuclear insecurity

TRAVERSE CITY —  International Affairs Forum co-chair Jack Segal will discuss nuclear weapons and the threat of nuclear proliferation at Thursday's IAF lecture, replacing scheduled speaker Alfredo Corchado.

Tuesday's earthquake in Mexico has forced Corchado, Mexico City bureau chief of The Dallas Morning News, to remain in the country directing coverage of the calamity. The 7.1-magnitude quake has killed at least 217 people and turned portions of the capital city to rubble, including Corchado's own home. IAF hopes to reschedule Corchado's talk for later this year. 

Segal's topic is timely given increasing threat from recent North Korean missile tests. He served as National Security Council Director for Nonproliferation during the Clinton administration and is an arms control expert who served on the START talks and was responsible for negotiating U.S. confidence-building measures with the former Soviet Union. He is teaching a sold-out Extended Education class on war against North Korea next week. Another offering of that in-depth class will be announced at the IAF event. 

All lectures begin at 6 p.m. and a preceded by a reception in the Dennos Museum Sculpture Court at 5:15 p.m. Tickets are $15 at the door and free to students and educators. 

Release date: september 20, 2017
