New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg will join former U.S. Defense Secretary William Cohen and former Senate Armed Services Committee Chairman Sam Nunn at New York University on Monday, April 28 for the second in a nationwide series of The Cohen-Nunn Dialogues. The event will take place from 4:00 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. in Tishman Auditorium, 40 Washington Square South, New York, N.Y.

This New York City installment, entitled Preserve, Protect and Defend: The Challenges to America’s Homeland Security, will also feature Admiral James Loy, former Deputy Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security; Stephen Flynn, author of America the Vulnerable; and Jessica Stern, author of Terror in the Name of God.

New York University President John Sexton will deliver the welcoming remarks. Members of the audience, including students and press, will have the opportunity to pose questions to the discussants.

“New York University is very pleased to host this Cohen-Nunn Dialogue and the participation of Mayor Bloomberg,” said Sexton. “It’s fitting that NYU is the place for this critical discussion, since our Center for Catastrophe Preparedness and Response has a vital and growing role in the field of homeland security research and scholarship.”

Secretary Cohen and Senator Nunn have organized the Dialogues to highlight the ideas of current and emerging political, media, military, business academic and community thought leaders on the seminal domestic and foreign policy issues faced by Americans. The series is co-sponsored by the Center for Strategic and International Studies and The Howard Gilman Foundation.
