Dear colleague,
​​


The Asan Institute for Policy Studies will host an 
​​
Asan Seminar 
titled, 
​​
“New Assessments of the North Korean Threat” 
on
​ ​
​​
Monday, March 23
​ 
in Washington, D.C.
​ ​
With a growing nuclear program and arsenal, North Korea continues to pose a real and major threat to the United States and its allies and partners in Northeast Asia. Coupled with the regime’s coercion policy ranging from the sinking of the 
​​
Cheonan 
in 2010 to the Sony cyber attacks in 2014, a shift in the assessment and policy towards North Korea is necessary in order to maintain peace and stability in the region. The 
​​
Asan Seminar 
will address the changing U.S. assessments of the North Korean threat, the relative danger of North Korea in the context of U.S. global priorities and threats, South Korean threat perceptions relating to North Korea, and North Korea’s threat to the nonproliferation regime.

Date / Time: Monday, March 23, 2015 / 2:00-4:00pm
​​
Location: 
The Stimson Center 
​(1211 Connecticut Ave. NW- 8th Floor​
)
