Public lecture of Togzhan Kassenova

8/25/2022 from 7:00 PM to 8:30 PM ISST

Russia’s unlawful invasion of Ukraine raised many nuclear-related risks ranging from heightened risk of a nuclear exchange to potential nuclear incidents involving nuclear power plants. For the first time in world history, one country seized the nuclear facilities of another and created an unprecedented challenge for the global nuclear community.

In the Public lecture, Dr. Togzhan Kassenova, an expert on nuclear politics and financial crime prevention, will familiarize the audience with the basics of nuclear and radiological security, explain the vulnerabilities associated with nuclear and radiological material, describe the historical discourse on nuclear and radiological terrorism, and provide an overview of relevant international legal instruments. Dr. Kassenova will also speak about safety and security concerns specific to nuclear power plants and address the international nuclear policy community’s reaction to Russia’s occupation of the Chornobyl and Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plants. 
Dr. Togzhan Kassenova is a senior fellow with the Project on International Security, Commerce, and Economic Statecraft (PISCES) at the Center for Policy Research, SUNY-Albany and a nonresident fellow in the Nuclear Policy Program at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace. She is the author of Atomic Steppe: How Kazakhstan Gave Up the Bomb (Stanford University Press, 2022).
On August 25, Dr. Kassenova will hold the lecture “Nuclear and Radiological Security: Risks and Vulnerabilities” for KSE as part of #GlobalMinds4Ukraine.
