The Impossible State Live Podcast: Should We Sign a Peace Treaty with North Korea?

March 31, 2023 • 3:00 – 3:45 pm EDT

Brought to you by

Should we just accept North Korea as a Nuclear Weapon State and give up on denuclearization? When do you expect North Korea to return to the negotiating table? How do we get North Korea back to the table? Do sanctions work?

Please join the Impossible State live podcast for a special discussion on re-approaching North Korea. The conversation is moderated by Dr. Victor Cha and featured Ms. Jenny Town and Mr. Frank Aum. In this episode, they discuss the incentives versus pressure debate, rethink working theories around sanctions and China’s role in negotiations, and explore how North Korea is affected by its changing external security environment.

This event is made possible by the generous support to the Center for Strategic and International Studies.
