On Sept. 3, physicist and peace activist Zia Mian explored the Iran Deal at this presentation at Germantown Friends Meeting in Philadelphia, an event co-sponsored by AFSC.  

Zia Mian, a physicist and peace activist at Princeton University’s Program on Science and Global Security, will be addressing these concerns directly. Zia has been a member of Princeton’s staff since 1997. His research and teaching focuses on nuclear weapons and nuclear energy policy. He has been part of the Iran project at the Program since 2010.

He is the co-chair of the International Panel on Fissile Materials (IPFM), a group of technical and policy experts from 18 countries working to reduce global stockpiles of nuclear weapon-useable material. He also is co-editor of Science & Global Security, an international journal of technical analysis for arms control, disarmament and nonproliferation policy. He is a member of the Board of the Arms Control Association in Washington DC.

In 2014 he received the Linus Pauling Legacy Award for “his accomplishments as a scientist and as a peace activist in contributing to the global effort for nuclear disarmament and for a more peaceful world.”

His most recent book is Unmaking the Bomb: A Fissile Material Approach to Nuclear Disarmament and Nonproliferation (with Harold Feiveson, Alexander Glaser, and Frank von Hippel, MIT Press, 2014).
