Breakfast Briefing: North Korea – will there be war?

Breakfast Briefing: North Korea – will there be war?

These audio and slides are from the basis of an hour-long briefing on 13 December 2017.

In particular the presentation addressed:

  • Another year, another Korea crisis – but is this one more serious?
  • The reasons behind North Korea’s unfaltering drive for WMD. Can this be curbed?
  • Regime change, Pyongyang: how does Kim Jong-un differ from his father Kim Jong-il? Might events in Zimbabwe worry him?
  • Regime change, Washington: can Trump succeed where his predecessors have failed?
  • Despite North Korea’s economy growing faster than the South’s last year, might they feel the effects of the latest sanctions?
  • Is there a military option? Would Trump really take that risk?
  • Can fresh diplomacy resolve the crisis, and on what basis might dialogue resume?
