Joe Cirincione, one of the country’s top non-proliferation experts, will discuss the Iran nuclear deal and how it is transforming the Middle East, including both the positive and negative aspects. He will also talk about whether the Middle East as a whole can be prevented from ‘going nuclear’ such as Saudi Arabia and others who are heavily investing in new nuclear power projects, and the $1 trillion dollar nuclear modernization program here at home.

Joe is currently the president of Ploughshares Fund, a global security foundation, and worked for nine years for the U.S House of Representatives on the staff of the Committee on Armed Services and the Committee on Government Operations. He previously served as Vice President for National Security and International Policy at the Center for American Progress and Director for Nonproliferation at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace.
