Developments on the Korean Peninsula

Challenges to Regional Security, and the U.S.-ROK Alliance

On November 29, 2018, the East Asia Institute and NBR’s Kenneth B. and Anne H.H. Pyle Center for Northeast Asia Studies convened a select group of academic, government, and business leaders to discuss U.S.-ROK relations and the denuclearization of North Korea. Participants discussed the political, economic, and security situation on the Korean Peninsula before turning to the implications of a denuclearized North Korea on the broader Indo-Pacific region.
