On December 4, Hudson Institute’s Chair of Asia Pacific Security, Dr. Patrick M. Cronin, will host a virtual workshop on North Korean Diplomacy, Deterrence, and Disruption. This workshop will bring together leading experts from the United States and South Korea via Zoom to discuss several critical issues on the Korean Peninsula that the United States and South Korea will need to face together after the 2020 US Presidential election.
This timely program will contribute to the debate about how the United States and South Korea should approach diplomacy with North Korea; how the allies can shore up deterrence in the months and years ahead; how to deal with disruptions like the pandemic and possible provocations like ICBM tests; and generally how US and Korean experts think about Kim Jong Un’s intentions vis-à-vis our two countries.

The 2020 Symposium will bring together opinion leaders from home and abroad, serving as a venue to share insights and shed light on ways to build sustainable peace on the Korean Peninsula.

The Symposium will also be a venue for international dialogue about the best means for achieving sustainable peace on the Korean Peninsula, such as inter-Korean summits, denuclearization and a peace settlement as well as the role culture plays in building peace and creating a conducive environment. Due to unprecedented circumstances triggered by the COVID-19 outbreak, the Symposium will only be available to the public online.
