"I learned so much about arms control and disarmament at ACA! I learned more about arms control here in four months than I had in all three years at my college."

Michael Klare is currently the secretary for the Arms Control Association board of directors and a senior visiting fellow working on emerging technologies—such as lethal autonomous weapons and unmanned aerial vehicles—and how arms control strategies can mitigate their adverse impacts.

He is a regular contributor for The Nation magazine and served as the Five Colleges Professor of Peace and World Security Studies at Hampshire College until his recent retirement. He also taught students at Amherst College, Smith College, Mount Holyoke College and the University of Massachusetts Amherst. He is the author of several volumes including Resource Wars and Blood and Oil: The Dangers and Consequences of America's Growing Petroleum Dependency.

His work as a senior visiting fellow will aim to increase our coverage and analysis in Arms Control Today and elsewhere on potential nuclear flashpoints around the globe and help us improve how Arms Control Association resources can be even more useful for university and college instructors.
