DPRK Event Calendar

Wednesday, December 11: Commission Hearing on a Helsinki Process for Northeast Asia (Washington, DC)
Since the end of the Korean War in 1953, U.S. relations with North Korea have been fraught with insecurity and instability. The threat of nuclear war and persistent reports of nuclear proliferation have often overshadowed the international community’s concerns about the domestic situation in North Korea during multiple famines and horrific reports of pervasive human rights violations. With a new leader in North Korea and no prospects for reviving the long-stalled Six-Party Talks, the international community has few options for effective engagement with North Korea.
Wednesday, December 11: Iran Nuclear Deal and Its Implications to North Korea (Washington, DC)
The CSIS Korea Chair and the Asan Institute for Policy Studies invite you to participate in our upcoming joint seminar featuring panels on Do Sanctions Work on North Korea? and Prospects for North Korean Nuclear Deal. This half-day public event will consist of two substantive panel discussions with the former government officials as well as North Korea policy experts from both the U.S. and South Korea.

Thursday, December 12: The Korean Dispute over the Northern Limit Line: Economics, International Law, and Security (Cambridge, MA)

Thursday, December 12: The Two Koreas Book Launch (Washington, DC)
The US-Korea Institute at SAIS invites you to join us for the DC book launch for the revised edition of The Two Koreas: A Contemporary History. Korea uber-analyst and author Robert Carlin discusses the re-release of what many consider the foremost book on modern Korea, Don Oberdorfer’s The Two Koreas.
Tuesday, December 17: 2014 and Security on the Korean Peninsula (Washington, DC)
The Korean peninsula reached new levels of instability in 2013. The North Korean leadership under Kim Jong-un engaged in a series of provocations and threatened the peace and security of the states in Northeast Asia with new missile and nuclear tests, expanded rhetorical threats to both South Korea and Japan, while also shutting down the Kaesong Industrial Complex. With recent reports that key figures such as Jang Song Thaek may have been removed from power, a key for stability in North Korea may have been removed. Join KEI for a discussion of the prospects for the year ahead, the threats posed by North Korea, potential options for encouraging Pyongyang to give up its nuclear weapons, and China’s role in resolving the North Korean nuclear crisis.
