How does one analyze North Korea developments? Is it possible to get a clear read and, if so, in what areas? Is North Korea a “black box” or more knowable, especially with new openings? This third installment of The Korea Society’s Knowing North Korea series features Dr. Sue Terry, Managing Director at Gerson Global Advisors, a strategic investment and advisory firm based in New York. In this role, she co-heads the Sovereign Advisory business and is primarily responsible for developing and managing the firm's strategy, activities and client relations in Asia, Australia and New Zealand. She is also a Senior Research Scholar at Columbia University and served most recently with the Council on Foreign Relations, National Intelligence Council and National Security Council.
