Video: What happens after a “Nuclear Event”?May 22, 2009 # 10:58 am # Human Rights # No Comment
On April 22, 2009, the Institute for International Law & Politics at Georgetown University co-sponsored a panel discussion with the James Martin Center for Non-Proliferation Studies of the Monterey Institute of International Studies on the realities of a domestic nuclear attack and the nuclear attribution process. The Martin Center website notes the questions addressed by the panelists:
What are the ramifications of a nuclear attack, such as the detonation of a nuclear weapon by terrorists in a populated urban center? How can first responders and local authorities best react in its aftermath? How can the “nuclear signature” of fissile materials used in such an attack be identified and used to trace the origins of the materials?
