Engaging North Korea

Presentation by Mel Gurtov. Public discussion of the nuclear issue has focused on ways to deter, contain, or punish North Korea. South Korea’s efforts to create dialogue with the North point to another approach: engagement.  This  talk assesses North Korea’s objectives, the differing U.S. and South Korean responses, China’s often misunderstood role, and the outlines of an engagement strategy. Gurtov is Professor Emeritus of Political Science at Portland State University. From 1966 to 1971 he was on the staff of the RAND Corporation where he was a co-author of the Pentagon Papers.
