The current state of hostilities between the US and North Korea comes with high cost to the people of Korea and the United States. What is the history behind the current crisis? And what is the best path forward for peace?

Hyun Lee, Managing Editor of ZoominKorea will discuss why we need a new policy towards North Korea

Why hasn’t North Korea collapsed by now? How is the country able to defy the labyrinth of international and U.S. sanctions to pursue its “Byungjin line,” the policy of pursuing parallel progress in nuclear deterrence and economic development? 

Kim Soobok of New York Committee for Implementation of the June 15 Joint Declaration
 will discuss North Korea’s recent economic development and the preeminence placed on science and technology in that process.
