Panelists include Gordon Flake, executive director of the Mansfield Foundation; Scott Rembrandt, director of research and academic affairs at the Korea Economic Institute; and Tom Byrne, vice president of Moody's Investors Service.
Korea is at the epicenter of a foreign policy crisis, the core of which is North Korea's nuclear weapons program. The discussion will explore this issue, including its implications for the U.S. alliance with the Republic of Korea, and how domestic politics in both North and South Korea affect the negotiation with the Democratic People's Republic of Korea. The discussion will also consider the implications of the situation on the Korean economy, the economic ties of the Republic of Korea with the U.S. and its relationships with other nations in the region.
