The Highlights from this Special Event

Specialization Weeks

At the end of last year Mr. Likhotal, former Advisor to President Gorbachev, hosted an exceptional documentary projection of The Arrow of Time, on Global Security.

Our students, along with external guests, were joined by Representatives of The International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons (ICAN), which is “a coalition of non-government organizations in over one hundred countries advocating for a strong and effective nuclear weapon ban treaty.” In 2017 ICAN received the Nobel Peace Prize for their humanitarian work.

Also in attendance were representatives from Swiss TV network Télévision Suisse Romande (TSR). They run the main French language channels in Switzerland.

This was an insightful evening, as all in attendance were shown the disunity we currently face in the world, as we are potentially on the brink of a new Cold War. This documentary answered the vital question of how we got to this point.

The below video, with Mr. Likhotal and a representative of ICAN, outlines the threats nuclear weapons pose and what our options are, as an international community.
