Asia in Focus: Sue Terry on North Korean Brinkmanship
January 19, 2018 @ 12:30 pm - 2:00 pm EST
In this discussion, Dr. Sue Mi Terry will analyze competing theories of North Korean behavior against the backdrop of what we know about the North’s strategic goals and its long-term pursuit of nuclear weapons. She will discuss how North Korea’s goals have been pursued by Kim Il-sung, Kim Jong-il, and now Kim Jong-un, and how they remained consistent over the years. Not even the regime’s literal bankruptcy has convinced the regime to change course, and for good reason: North Korea’s brinkmanship tactics have paid off for the North by making possible the regime’s survival for more than 60 years.
The discussion will conclude with a moderated question and answer session. This event is off-the-record. RSVP: https://asiafocus.eventbrite.com
Dr. Sue Mi Terry is Senior Fellow for the Korea Chair at the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS). Prior to joining CSIS, she had a long and distinguished career in intelligence, policymaking, and academia following Korean issues.
