Five Myths About North Korea

This seminar is part of McLane Middleton's Policy and Public Affairs Speaker Series

North Korea, with its bizarre backwardness and outrageous bluster, is often reduced to a caricature. But the mockable regime has confounded U.S. policymakers for the past quarter century. Conventional deterrence, engagement and coercive diplomacy have kept the peace in the Korean peninsula, but have failed to denuclearize Pyongyang or alleviate the suffering of the North Korean people. 

Dr. Lee, one of the world's leading North Korea analysts, addresses common misperceptions about North Korean state and society and their policy implications, and prescribes what the new U.S. administration's approach to the growing North Korean threat should be.
