Engaging North Korea: Prospects, Benefits and Challenges

December 3, 2020, 14.00 PM (Brussels time)

Engagement is necessary to address North Korean issues, but sustained engagement has been elusive in recent years as the United States and the international community have prioritised sanctions and summits without a proper diplomatic process. Three experts discuss the prospects that diplomacy can resume following the US presidential election.

About the Seminar

Engagement is necessary to address North Korea’s nuclear weapons programme, inter-Korean peace and reconciliation, and human rights issues in North Korea. However, sustained engagement has been elusive in recent years as the United States and the international community have prioritised sanctions and, under President Donald Trump, top-level summits without a proper diplomatic process.

In this seminar, three experts with long-term experience of sustained engagement with North Korea will discuss the prospects that diplomacy can resume following the US presidential election. They will also analyse the benefits and challenges that they have encountered in their engagement with Pyongyang.

The event will take place on 3 December from 14.00 to 15.00 PM.
