Homeland Security expert Stephen Flynn, president of the Center for National Policy, will speak at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill on Oct. 6 at 5:30 p.m.
Flynn will deliver a lecture titled “Katrina, Haiti, Deepwater Horizon: Building a More Resilient World” in the Nelson Mandela Auditorium at the FedEx Global Education Center. A reception will be held in the Global Center’s atrium following the event.
Flynn is the author of “The Edge of Disaster: Rebuilding a Resilient Nation,” and the national bestseller, “America the Vulnerable.” He also served as the lead Homeland Security policy adviser on President Barack Obama’s transition team and is currently a member of the bi-partisan National Security Preparedness Group.
“Stephen Flynn speaks out on issues that impact the lives of all Americans - including terrorism, environmental disasters, and natural hazard events – in the context of national policy. We feel fortunate to have the opportunity to share this dynamic speaker with the community, and hope Steve’s visit will spark lively debate about community resilience,” said Gavin Smith, executive director of the UNC Center for the Study of Natural Hazards and Disasters.
The event is co-sponsored by the UNC Center for the Study of Natural Hazards and Disasters and the Triangle Center on Terrorism and Homeland Security at Duke University.Photo: http://uncnews.unc.edu/images/stories/news/government/2010/steve%20flynn%20-%20portrait.jpg
