Public Record - 2009 Halifax International Security Forum (Part 7 of 8)


The Halifax International Security Forum is held in Halifax, Nova Scotia, November 20–22, 2009. This conference is the first of its kind in North America and addresses the top global security challenges facing the transatlantic community.

In this second panel discussion on November 22nd, entitled “The Global Strategic Debate Surrounding Nuclear Weapons,” panellists discuss how countries in Asia and the Middle East might respond if nuclear weapons programs in North Korea and Iran move ahead. They also focus on the vision of a world free of nuclear weapons and whether such a vision can be turned into a reality. The panellists are Stephen Hadley (the former national security advisor for United States President George W. Bush), Ellen Tauscher (U.S. under-secretary of state for arms control and international security), Camille Grand (executive director at the Foundation for Strategic Research), and Tsuneo Watanabe (senior fellow at the Tokyo Foundation). Discussion is later opened up to forum attendees.
