In this episode, Dr. Victor Cha is joined by Dr. Toby Dalton and Dr. Sue Mi Terry to discuss the U.S.-South Korea alliance and what that could mean for South Korean nuclear proliferation. They draw on Dr. Dalton and Ain Han's article, "Elections, Nukes, and the Future of the South Korea-U.S. Alliance," to unpack South Korean opinions on acquiring nuclear weapons in the Korean Peninsula, as well as how the November 2020 U.S. elections could affect future security relations between the alliances.

Dr. Toby Dalton is co-director and a senior fellow of the Nuclear Policy Program at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace. Previously, he served in a variety of high-level positions at the U.S. Department of Energy, including acting director for the Office of Nuclear Safeguards and Security; and senior policy advisor to the Office of Nonproliferation and International Security.
