Roundtable on North Korea Nuclear Crisis

"Roundtable on the North Korea Crisis" flier

Special Episode – Part 1

On September 22, 2017, scholars from the University of Wisconsin-Madison held a roundtable discussion about what they called the “North Korea Crisis.” In the months previous, North Korea had reached several milestones in nuclear weapon development, and breakdowns in diplomacy between North Korea and the United States threatened war. The panel included Eunsook Jung (Political Science), Louise Young (History), and Andrew Kydd (Political Science) among others. Their discussion was hosted by the Center for East Asian Studies at UW-Madison.

A lot has happened in the last 11 months regarding North Korean affairs. Today, Joy Block and Galen Poor revisit this topic in a special episode. Listen to Part 1 to hear the original panel presentations of Professors Jung, Young, and Kydd. Despite the changes of the past year, each remains remarkably helpful to understanding the historical and political context of North Korea’s current nuclearization.

Listen to Part 2 for our recent interview with the panel’s moderator, where we consider the significance of the past year of developments in North Korean affairs.
