Leader of hunt for Iraqi WMD speaks at U-M
EVENT: David Kay, who led the U.S. search for Iraqi weapons of mass destruction in 2003, will deliver the Harold Jacobson Lecture at the University of Michigan. An annual event, the Jacobson Lecture celebrates the contributions of Jacobson, known to his friends and colleagues as Jake, to the Institute for Social Research (ISR) Center for Political Studies and the U-M.
The title of Kay's talk is "What is the Future of Non-Proliferation?" He will discuss efforts to prevent additional states from acquiring nuclear weapons and the emergence of a global black market in materials and technology for WMD, including biological as well as nuclear weapons.
Kay currently consults on counter-terrorism and weapons proliferation and frequently serves as a commentator on these issues on the Hill and in the national media. He is a senior fellow with the Potomac Institute for Policy Studies. Among his many publications is a book he co-edited with Jacobson.
The lecture is co-sponsored by the ISR Center for Political Studies and the U-M Department of Political Science.
