How to Deal with North Korea’s Nuclear and Missile Challenges @ Manchester Community Library

Green Mountain Academy for Lifelong Learning (GMALL) welcomes Yangmo Ku, Acting Director of The Peace and War Center at Norwich University, to talk about North Korea. Arguably, the North Korean nuclear/missile problem is currently one of the most challenging U.S. foreign policy issues, because the nation can directly threaten the U.S. mainland unless the issue is resolved in a peaceful manner. Given this importance, this lecture first addresses North Korea’s motives for nuclear and missile development as well as its costs and benefits to the North Korean regime. Then it explores how the international community, particularly the U.S. government, has handled the pressing issue. Based upon this historical analysis, the speaker gives his own ideas of resolving the long-standing, difficult issue. Registration is $15 in advance or $20 at the door.
