Terrorism and Weapons of Mass Destruction: Government Actions to Confront a Complex Problem
Join us for February FaculTea on Monday, Feb. 26
Dr. Alethia Cook, Associate Professor of Political Science will present: Terrorism and Weapons of Mass Destruction: Government Actions to Confront a Complex Problem
Since the early 1990s, experts have warned that a major WMD terrorist attack on the US is inevitable. In response, government has worked internationally and domestically to prevent an attack and improve our ability to respond to the impact of one if it happens. Chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear weapons have unique characteristics and impacts, which multiplies the challenges they pose. This presentation will examine this complex issue area and the elaborate policy framework that has been developed to try and keep us safe.
The presentation will be held in Joyner Library room 2409 from 3:30-5:30 p.m.
