ACIR is honored to host High Representative Ms. Izumi Nakamitsu, the sitting Under Secretary General for Disarmament Affairs at the United Nations, on June 25, 2018 as she speaks about "Securing Our Common Future: an Agenda for Disarmament." In light of a deteriorating international security environment, including a return to Cold War tensions, and the seeming neglect of arms control as a means for building trust, mitigating risk and ensuring sustainable peace and security is front and center on Ms. Nakamitzu's agenda. During her address, she will present hers and the UN's thoughts on issues surrounding weapons of mass destruction and other strategic weapons, conventional weapons and their impacts on civilians, and on future technologies and weapons systems. Come listen to Ms. Nakamitsu as she provides analysis of the current international security situation and provides more detail on specific policies.
Ms. Izumi Nakamitsu assumed her position as Under-Secretary-General and High Representative for Disarmament Affairs on 1 May 2017. Prior to taking on this post, Ms. Nakamitsu served as Assistant Administrator of the Crisis Response Unit at the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) since 2014.
