Nuclear Weapons as an EA Cause Area

December 5, 2022 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Virtual panel discussion followed by a Q&A session to increase the understanding of nuclear risks within the EA community

The session will focus on why the nuclear cause area is becoming a higher priority – and discuss underlying impact, neglectedness, and tractability issues. If recent events in Ukraine have made you wonder about EA’s possible contributions to preventing nuclear war, this is the event for you!

This will be a unique opportunity to elevate your understanding of nuclear risk reduction with the help of a bench of renowned and established nuclear experts. No prior knowledge of the cause area is needed, and everyone should come away with the ability to better compare nuclear risks to other longtermist concerns.

Our Distinguished Panelists:

  • Joan Rohlfing (Nuclear Threat Initiative, President)
  • Christine Parthemore (Council on Strategic Risks, CEO)
  • James Acton(Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, Co-Director of the Nuclear Policy Program)
  • Matt Korda (Federation of American Scientists, Senior Research Associate and Project Manager of the Nuclear Information Project)
