Managing Nuclear Risks with North Korea and Proliferation Risks Beyond the Korean Peninsula

The Stimson Center’s Security for a New Century and 38 North Programs hosted a webinar to discuss: Managing Nuclear Risks with North Korea and Proliferation Risks Beyond the Korean Peninsula, with particular emphasis on contemporary policy issues surrounding North Korea’s nuclear weapons program, nuclear deterrence, and diplomacy in the region. The webinar was a closed-door, invitation-only program for congressional staffers and was part of SNC’s Korea Study Group event series.

The featured speakers offered a combination of senior-level US government experience and analytical expertise and provided commentary on ways to manage and mitigate nuclear risks with North Korea in lieu of final and fully verified denuclearization. In a context of stalled diplomacy, the panel explored: the possibility of a restart of North Korean provocations and long-range missile tests; an extended testing moratorium; implications and recommendations for US and allied deterrence, both in terms of capabilities but also credibility; and the nuclear proliferation risks beyond North Korea, including increased domestic debate in both South Korea and Japan around developing indigenous nuclear capabilities.

Speakers:

  • Moderator: Dr. Clint Work, Fellow for Stimson’s Security for a New Century and 38 North programs.
  • Dr. Brad Roberts, Director of the Center for Global Security Research at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory
  • Vann H. Van Diepen, former Principal Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for International Security and Nonproliferation
  • Kelsey Davenport, Director for Nonproliferation Policy at the Arms Control Association
