LOS ALAMO-JAPAN INSTITUTE NEWS
Los Alamos-Japan Institute Global Conversations is honored to welcome former Secretary of State Madeleine K. Albright for a special Veterans Day webinar on Nov. 11 at 4 p.m. The public is invited to a limited opportunity to meet the speakers in a private event.
LAJI Global Conversations features Clifton Truman Daniel in conversation with thought leaders and change makers 75 years after his grandfather, President Harry S. Truman, authorized the use of atomic weapons against Japan.
Secretary Albright is a professor in the Practice of Diplomacy at the Georgetown University School of Foreign Service. She served as the first female and 64th United States Secretary of State. In her July 24 editorial in the magazine Science, Albright maintains, “For the world to change course, the United States must restore its position as a supporter of negotiated disarmament and an architect of peace…75 years into the nuclear age, the United States must get off its current path and once again lead toward a nuclear weapons-free world.”
The Los Alamos-Japan Institute builds global cultural bridges with a network of atomic bomb survivors, scientists, artists, educators, mayors and museums to further intercultural dialogue and collaboration. Seven decades after the atomic bomb, Los Alamos, Hiroshima and Nagasaki remain places of conscience where personal and community memories remain deeply rooted in the culture and values.
