Notable politicians at ASIS

 - 
Wednesday, August 29, 2012

In case you haven't had enough of politicians this election year, you'll have a chance to hear some notable politicos at ASIS this year. ASIS yesterday announced that, as she did last year, DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano will speak deliver a keynote address on the first day of the show, September 10, from 12 to 1:30.

Other keynote speakers include former defense secretary Robert Gates and former Director General of the International Atomic Energy Agency (from 1997-2009) and Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Mohamed ElBaradei

ElBaradei will speak on Tuesday, Sept. 11, from 8 to 9 a.m. From the program: "In his last months as head of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), Mohamed ElBaradei found himself at the explosive crux of the world’s nuclear politics, leading negotiations between the Obama administration and Tehran in an effort to break the stalemate over Iran's nuclear program. He had been intimately involved with this crisis in the previous six years as the IAEA worked to verify the nature of the Iranian program. Drawing on his career as a diplomat, international civil servant and scholar, Dr. ElBaradei will address global security, the peaceful use of nuclear energy, nuclear nonproliferation and disarmament, international organizations and international law."
 
Gates, who served as U.S. Secretary of Defense from 2006 to 2011, will speak at 8 a.m. on the last day of the show, Wednesday, September 12. 

One of the most respected leaders in recent U.S. history, Robert Gates served as a trusted advisor to eight U.S. presidents, driving U.S. intelligence and defense policies over the past four and a half decades from the Cold War to today’s ongoing war on terrorism. As Secretary of Defense under two presidents—Barack Obama and George W. Bush—and through two wars—Iraq and Afghanistan—Gates shares his candid insights on global politics and world affairs, U.S. intelligence and defense strategies, leadership and leading change in a large institution, and the global challenges of the 21st century. Join us for this provocative presentation.
