Please join us for a panel discussion event on the future of U.S.-North Korea negotiations towards denuclearization and peace. On the heels of Kim Jong Un’s year-end deadline for the Trump administration to offer a workable proposal, nuclear diplomacy is already in a fragile state after North Korea recently tested short-range ballistic missiles and a tactical guided weapon. Questions mount as the window appears to be narrowing for diplomacy to roll back Pyongyang’s nuclear weapons program.


The panel will 1) examine the current state of play and strategies by Washington, Pyongyang, Seoul, Beijing, and Moscow that will affect the future of negotiations; 2) discuss appropriate goals for negotiations and a third summit; and 3) offer recommendations for U.S. policymakers on concluding a future agreement based on a forthcoming CNAS report, Negotiating Toward a Denuclearization-Peace Roadmap on the Korean Peninsula, authored by Duyeon Kim.


Please note that the event will not be live-streamed. Space is limited, and RSVPs will be closed once capacity is reached. We hope to see you on Thursday, May 30.
