Recent developments on the Korean peninsula, including last month’s “25 August Agreement,” provide a new window of opportunity for North-South cooperation. What are the political and economic dynamics in North Korea that made this agreement possible? What policy options exist for the United States in response to these new developments?

Please join the U.S.-Korea Institute at SAIS and the Institute for Peace and Unification Studies at Seoul National University for a discussion on changing politics and economy in North Korea, and a look at the future of the Korean peninsula.
