Friday, December 13: China-Korea-U.S Relations A Robert Scalpino Memorial Dialogue (New York, NY)
Korea’s President and her advisors speak of hope for enhanced trilateral relations among Korea, the United States and China. 2013’s historic summits between Obama and Park, Obama and Xi, and Park and Xi revealed a growing complementarity of positions vis-a-vis North Korea and common calls for denuclearization. How does Korea navigate space among its great ally and great neighbor, balancing political-security and economic realities? How do domestic political determinants influence foreign policy in this area for all three actors? How do China and U.S. strategists regard cooperation on near-term challenges, such as North Korean nuclear and missile development, as well as the mid to long-term realities of integration and unification?
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.
