Kittrie speaks on "Nuclear Iran" on KJZZ

August 27, 2009

Orde Kittrie, professor of law and faculty fellow for the Center for the Study of Law, Science, & Technology at the Sandra Day O'Connor College of Law, was interviewed recently on KJZZ radio as a local introduction to the multipart series on "The Challenges of a Nuclear Iran."

The series discusses Iran's suspect nuclear program, its potential repercussions and the implications for the United States and the rest of the world community.

Kittrie's teaching and research focus on international law (especially nonproliferation and sanctions) and criminal law.

In 2008, Professor Kittrie testified on nonproliferation issues before both the U.S. Senate and House and is one of 12 members of a special Congressionally created committee to make recommendations on how to better prevent the proliferation of nuclear, chemical and biological weapons. Prior to joining the College, Kittrie served at the U.S. State Department where, as its lead nuclear affairs attorney, he negotiated five U.S.-Russia nuclear agreements and a U.N. treaty to combat nuclear terrorism. In other assignments, Kittrie directed the Office of International Anti-Crime Programs and was Special Assistant to the Under Secretary for Economics and Business Affairs.
