What should we make of the considerable uptick in North Korean nuclear and ballistic missile tests? What are the best tools that the United States and its allies should bring to bear against the North Korea problem? In a fascinating conversation for this episode of the MWI Podcast, Dr. Victor Cha answers these and other questions.
Dr. Cha is the director of Asian Studies and holds the D.S. Song–Korea Foundation Chair in the Department of Government and School of Foreign Service at Georgetown University. Before that, he spent three years as the Director for Asian Affairs at the National Security Council. So he brings both an academic and a practitioner’s perspective to this discussion about the very pressing challenge posed by North Korea.
