Cambridge, MA — Mohamed ElBaradei, the winner of the 2005 Nobel Peace Prize, will deliver a public address Nov. 1 at Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government. “Nonproliferation and Arms Control: Challenges and Opportunities” will begin at 6 p.m. in the John F.

ElBaradei is the director general of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), an intergovernmental organization within the United Nations system. He was appointed to the office in 1997, and reappointed to a third term in September 2005.
This year’s Peace Prize was awarded jointly to ElBaradei and the IAEA by the Nobel committee “for their efforts to prevent nuclear energy from being used for military purposes and to ensure that nuclear energy for peaceful purposes is used in the safest possible way.”
The Forum address is open to the public and to the press. This event will also be web-streamed live: http://www.iop.harvard.edu/events_forum.html
