ISDP Forum: The Perils of North Korean Collapsism: Why we need to focus on the denuclearization, and not the collapse, of North Korea

May 7, 2015 - 15:00-16:30

By Dr. Jong Kun Choi, Associate Professor of Political Science & International Studies at Yonsei University, Seoul, South Korea. He is currently spending a sabbatical year at the Nordic Institute of Asian Studies in Copenhagen, Denmark. 
 
In this ISDP forum, Dr. Choi, Associate Professor of Political Science & International Studies at Yonsei University, problematizes the return of the North Korean collapsism, arguing that it will only aggravate Pyongyang’s threat and justify its motives for continuing its nuclear program. From the vantage point of denuclearization, collapsism distorts the policy discussion, which is in sore need of a realistic, fact based approach with the goal of seeking a peaceful resolution to the current nuclear stalemate.
