Distinguished Speakers Program: Sir Lawrence Freedman

2 April 2012

The next stage of the nuclear age: better, worse or more of the same?

Sir Lawrence Freedman, Professor of War Studies and Vice-Principal of Kings' College London, will deliver his presentation as part of the Sydney Law School Distinguished Speakers Program 2012.

Most of the systems and concepts associated with nuclear strategy and arms control were developed during the first two decades of the nuclear age. In many ways they can be considered a success. No nuclear weapons have been used in anger since 1945. Yet if disaster is to be avoided this success must be sustained in a changing and unstable international system. This lecture will explore the ways in which the situation could get a lot worse or a lot better.
