The months leading up to South Korea's April 10 legislative election have been riddled with tension. Both the ruling People's Power Party (PPP), the party of President Yoon Suk-yeol, and the main opposition Democratic Party of Korea (DP) are facing internal feuds, a narrowing gap in approval ratings and investigations into lawmakers' personal scandals. The rampant polarization has even inspired politically motivated violence, including the nonfatal stabbing of opposition leader Lee Jae-myung and attack on ruling party lawmaker Bae Hyun-jin. 

Following the election, the National Committee on North Korea invites you to join us for an analysis of the results with experts Duyeon Kim (Center for a New American Security), Andrew Yeo (Brookings Institution and Catholic University of America) and Scott Snyder (Korea Economic Institute of America), who will discuss the implications of this contentious race. 


※ Title: Revisiting Sanctions on North Korea


Host: George Washington University, Institute for Korean Studies

Date: Tuesday, April 23th, 2024 | 9:00 A.M. - 10:30 A.M. (EDT)

Description:  The operations of the U.N. Panel of Experts on sanctions on North Korea are set to cease at the end of April as the Panel’s current mandate expires. Russia’s veto on a U.N. Security Council resolution to extend the mandate will mark the conclusion of the U.N. body, which has been tasked with monitoring compliance with the sanctions regime. We cordially invite you to join the GW Institute for Korean Studies and the Institute for Peace and Unification Studies at Seoul National University for an engaging panel discussion where experts will delve into critical issues surrounding the efficacy and impact of current sanctions policies on North Korea. Our distinguished panelists will explore various facets of the sanctions regime, shedding light on key themes such as North Korea’s evolving dynamics with Russia and sanctions violations, the extent of China's cooperation in enforcing sanctions against North Korea, the economic consequences of the changing sanctions landscape on North Korea, and strategies to fine-tune and optimize the sanctions policy.
