Dr. Marie Chevrier (professor, public policy) participated in a United Nations event, a Civil Society Forum in support of Security Council resolution 1540 (2004) in Vienna, Austria, during Jan. 8 to 10.  The meeting was hosted by the Federal Ministry for European and International Affairs of Austria in cooperation with the United Nations Office for Disarmament Affairs.

The meeting focused on the pursuit of the shared goal of nuclear disarmament and a world free of weapons of mass destruction, including through implementation of U.N. resolution 1540 (2004).
