Catalytic Diplomacy for Peace: Lessons Learned from Two Swarthmore Graduates
Start Date: 4/19/2016Start Time: 4:30 PM
End Date: 4/19/2016End Time: 6:00 PM

Event Description:
Creative ideas, pursued with personal diplomacy through political structures, can make a real difference to peace and conflict. During his presentation, Stone will reference successes and failures. These include inventing five tabled Washington-Moscow Summit arms control proposals. They also include: catalytic undertakings in initiating scientific exchange with China, Vietnam and Iran; efforts to end the Cambodian civil war; stabilizing the conflict between Mainland China and Taiwan; defending human rights in Russia and Constitutional rights in America; and a series of failures to reverse current American doctrine on first use of nuclear weapons.

Jeremy J. Stone ‘57 Swarthmore College, Honorary Doctor of Laws for peace activities ’85 and B.J. Stone, ’57 were key players in what Stone calls “catalytic diplomacy” who, with the assistance of his wife, B.J. Stone ’57, shaped a range of negotiations over nuclear weapons during the Cold War, and played a key role in renewing scientific exchange with U.S. and China (1972) and U.S. and Iran (1999), and worked to contain super-Maoist movements in North Korea, Cambodia and Peru, among other topics.

Jeremy Stone served as president of the Federation of American Scientists from 1970 to 2000, where he led that organization's advocacy initiatives in arms control, human rights, and foreign policy. In 2002, Stone continued his work through his new organization, Catalytic Diplomacy. Stone received his Ph.D. in mathematics from Stanford and joined Stanford Research Institute (SRI) as a research mathematician where he worked on Error Correcting Codes. In 1962, he left SRI to work at Hudson Institute on issues of war and peace.
