The Nuclear Timeline with North Korea, featuring Jung Pak and Annika Betancourt

November 15, 2019 - North Korea has warned that it will pursue a so-called “new path” if substantive progress isn't made in negotiations with the United States by the end of the year. But what's behind this deadline, and what should we expect in the coming months?

Dr. Jung Pak is a senior fellow at the Brookings Institution Center for East Asia Policy Studies. She previously held senior positions at the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) and the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI).

US-North Korea Relations from Kim Jong Il to Kim Jong Un

October 30, 2019 - History plays a role in shaping current events all over our the world -- but it seems to be especially alive in Korea. Scholars and practitioners that work on the Korean Peninsula can all agree on the importance of learning lessons from the past, but that is where the consensus stops. Dr. Ramon Pacheco Pardo is an Associate Professor in International Relations at King's College London and author of the book US-North Korea Relations from Kim Jong Il to Kim Jong Un. In this discussion with Korea Society Policy Director Jonathan Corrado, Pardo attempts to “see through the cycle” and attribute rational explanations to Pyongyang’s mercurial behavior, asserting that North Korea’s has used brinkmanship and bargaining to achieve its main goal, which he considers to be diplomatic normalization with the US.
