On April 28, 2008, New York University's Center for Catastrophe Preparedness and Response (CCPR) hosted the second in a series of The Cohen-Nunn Dialogues. The topic of this dialogue was titled: Preserve, Protect and Defend: The Challenges to America's Homeland Security. The Dialogues were started by William Cohen, Secretary of Defense under President Clinton, and Senator Sam Nunn of Georgia, to foster a national discussion on critical issues requiring focus and reform by the leadership of the United States. Joining Secretary Cohen and Senator Nunn for the homeland security dialogue were New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, Admiral James Loy of the U.S. Coast Guard, and noted scholars Jessica Stern of Harvard University and Stephen Flynn of the Counsel on Foreign Relations.
