Following an expert roundtable and a youth forum earlier in the day, the Academy hosted the 2016 Distinguished Morton L. Mandel Annual Public Lecture on “The Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty at 20.” Arun Rath of WGBH and NPR moderated a panel discussion with Rose Gottemoeller (U.S. State Department), Siegfried Hecker (Stanford University), Robert Rosner (University of Chicago), and Lassina Zerbo (Preparatory Commission for the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty Organization). The panelists discussed the prospects for ratifying the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty and the challenges presented by nuclear testing. The program was live streamed to members and guests gathered at the Center for International Security and Cooperation (CISAC) at Stanford University, the James Martin Center for Nonproliferation Studies in Washington, D.C., and at the University of Chicago, and groups in each location participated in a discussion following the panelists' presentations.
