One year ago, the Hoover Institution and the US-Korea Institute at the Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies (SAIS) hosted a conference to discuss the rising North Korea threat. The conference established a series of policy recommendations on how the incoming administration can best address the dangers of a nuclear-armed North Korea.

On June 14th, Hoover Senior Fellow, former Secretary of Defense, William J. Perry will host a panel of high-profile experts as they analyze current & future US policy on the Korean Peninsula. Discussion will include the effects of China’s diplomacy in slowing North Korea’s nuclear programs, interim agreements that might be negotiated with North Korea, and possible regional security and cooperation agreements.
