OFF-SITE PANEL DISCUSSION 60 Years of Atoms for Peace Vienna, 6 December 2013 | 6 p.m. Bruno Kreisky Forum for International Dialogue (http://www.wilsoncenter.org/event/site-event-sixty-years-atoms-for-peace) On 8 December 1953, U.S. President Dwight D. Eisenhower proposed the establishment of an organization for the peaceful use of atomic energy in his famous "Atoms for Peace" speech to the United Nations General Assembly. Eisenhower's proposal eventually led to the founding of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) in 1957, the oldest and biggest international organization in Vienna/Austria. Even today, Eisenhower's "Atoms for Peace" speech remains at the heart of debates over nuclear energy and non-proliferation. The panel discussion on "60 Years of Atoms for Peace" is organized by the IAEA History Research Project (Institute of Contemporary History, University of Vienna) in cooperation with the Nuclear Proliferation International History Project (Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars, Washington D.C.). The discussion will be held off-site at the University of Vienna on 6 December 2013 at 6 p.m. For more information, please contact Magdalena Reitbauer (Magdalena.Reitbauer@univie.ac.at).
