Emboldened by a nuclear arsenal, North Korean President Kim Jong-un seems intent on commanding global attention with brash threats and flagrant displays of his nation’s military capabilities. As Scott Snyder knows, the destabilizing effect of his actions and potential for far-reaching consequences can’t be underestimated.

Add to that, the wild-card effect of “fire and fury” tweets blasted out by President Trump in response to North Korea’s brazen ballistics tests, and the scene is ripe for confrontation.

A senior fellow for Korea studies and director of the Program on U.S.-Korea Policy at the Council on Foreign Relations, Snyder offers expert insights into the storied background and often tense relationship between the United States and North Korea. What is the U.S. policy for the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula? Are sanctions enough to prevent escalation? And can China apply pressure to mitigate Kim’s defiance and is it in its interest to do so?

Join us for a timely and provocative program about what many consider to be the top global threat facing the United States.

Program Moderator: Lee Cullum, Host of CEO, KERA
