According to the Wall Street Journal, the Obama Administration considered North Korea to be the top national security priority for the incoming administration, and this view was conveyed to President Trump's transition team.
Professor Ralph Buultjens, a student of Hans Morgenthau, will address the North Korean nuclear threat from a realist perspective. Buultjens will explore the dangers of a North Korean nuclear threat, and what the American response to this potential threat should be. How will China respond to this potentially destabilizing dispute in the region? And will the US and China work together or be at odds?
Drawing on his vast knowledge and understanding of how conflicts in one part of the world affect peace in another, Buultjens offers insight you can’t find anywhere else.
