The Centre for the Study of Existential Risk is delighted to present a talk on North Korea's nuclear policy, given by Dr. Wade Huntley (US Naval Postgraduate School).
What’s next in the North Korean nuclear crisis? The past two years have seen portentous developments, from North Korea’s tests of its largest nuclear device and farthest reaching missiles to the unprecedented Singapore summit meeting of Kim Jong-un and Donald Trump. With an eye to anticipating future developments, this presentation will identify important prior inflection points in the evolving crisis, highlight uncertainties in key preconceptions of the drivers of North Korean behavior, and assess what has and has not changed in the strategic dynamics on the Korean peninsula moving forward.
Dr Huntley has taught at several universities, and has published work on US strategic policies, East and South Asian regional security, and international relations theory. He specialises in the North Korean nuclear crisis.
