This upcoming Disarm Kōrero session is co-hosted by the Disarmament and Security Centre and the National Centre for Peace and Conflict Studies Students' Association (University of Otago) and we'll be delving into the issues surrounding depleted uranium.
Guest speakers: Matt Fuller (Phd University of Otago) and Commander Robert Green (Royal Navy, Ret'd).
Come join us for an insightful, interesting (and hopefully inspiring!) session discussing a very important disarmament issue. All welcome.
