The Marquette University Center for Peacemaking empowers the university and the wider community to explore together the necessary skills to become informed, spiritually-centered, nonviolent peacemakers. Rooted in the Ignatian charism, the center fosters an awakening to the holistic relationship of scholarship, spirituality, nonviolent living, and the active struggle for peace and justice.
Joseph Cirincione, Ploughshares Fund
Joe Cirincione has been a nuclear policy expert for over three decades. Over the last four years, as president of the global security foundation, Ploughshares Fund, he assembled a network of over 50 organizations and 200 individuals to stop Iran from getting a nuclear bomb and stop a new war in the Middle East. Cirincione appears frequently in the media, from NPR to The Colbert Report. A dynamic speaker, he will provide an insider’s view of the political fight over the recent nuclear accord with Iran, the policy debates and what we can expect as the deal goes into effect. Will this really stop an Iranian bomb and, if so, for how long?
This event is sponsored by the Marquette University Center for Peacemaking, Peace Studies program, International Affairs program, and the United Nations Association of Milwaukee.
