Conference: 28 Oct 2020 - 15:00

The result of the upcoming US president election will have a strong impact on global politics. The Korean Peninsula is no exception. President Donald Trump has made history by meeting North Korean leader Kim Jong-un three times, but his approach to the US-ROK alliance has brought growing tensions with South Korea. Joe Biden promises to “work with allies” including South Korea, but he has been critical of Trump’s North Korea policy.

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 prioritized 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.
