The Defense Intelligence Agency says that North Korea has already developed a miniaturized nuclear weapon that can fit on top of an ICBM. The number of nuclear bombs is also growing larger, though estimates differ. Global concerns about an evolving North Korean military threat appears to be advancing far more rapidly than many experts had predicted. Rhetoric has become more and more threatening from both America and North Korea. 

  • What are the elements of President Trump’s policy?
  • How has the U.N. responded?
  • Are these the best policy options?
  • Is the U.S. reading the issues and evidence correctly?
  • What diplomatic tools are available to deescalate the crisis?

University of Redlands Professor of Government Graeme Auton was a NATO Research Fellow and a Ford Postdoctoral Fellow at Harvard's Center for International Affairs. In the early 1990s he worked for the U.S. Arms Control and Disarmament Agency in Washington, Brussels and Vienna. In 2006 he undertook a research visit to the Russian Far East, and in the fall of 2007 he spent four months in South Korea as a Senior Fulbright Scholar, teaching international security studies at Kyung-Hee University, Seoul, while working on a book on Northeast Asian regionalism. He is presently working on a book about security and political-economic aspects of Northeast Asian regionalism.
