Weapons, War and a Chance for Peace
The Garfield Center for Public Leadership at Hiram College and the Eisenhower Institute at Gettysburg College proudly present:
Weapons, War, and a Chance for Peace
a conversation with
Susan Eisenhower and John Lauder.
Monday, April 17, 2023 | 6:30 p.m.
The National Press Club, Washington D.C. | Holeman Lounge
On the 70th anniversary of President Eisenhower’s “Chance for Peace” speech, join national security experts Susan Eisenhower and John Lauder for a thoughtful conversation about the historical context behind today’s war in Ukraine, America’s relationship with Russia and regional concerns involving conventional and nuclear weapons. In this critical moment, we ask the same question Ike did 70 years ago: is there a chance for peace?
Susan Eisenhower is founding director and chairman emerita of the Eisenhower Institute at Gettysburg College, and granddaughter of President Dwight D. Eisenhower. She is a well-respected policy analyst in the areas of national security, leadership, and non-proliferation in Russia.
John Lauder is an internationally-recognized authority on arms control, weapons of mass destruction, and the verification of nonproliferation agreements. A Hiram College alumnus, he spent 35 years in government service, notably as the Director of the Intelligence Community’s Nonproliferation Center and Arms Control Intelligence Staff.
This is a joint event hosted by the Hiram College Garfield Center for Public Leadership and the Eisenhower Institute at Gettysburg College.
Doors will open at 6 p.m. for cocktails and hors d’oeuvres. Seating for this event is limited. Registration is required by April 7, but may close earlier if capacity is met.
