On May 25 this year, in response to North Korea's second nuclear test, the UN Security Council implemented resolution 1874, containing robust financial sanctions. On the eve of its adoption,
Susan Rice, the U.S. ambassador to the UN, stated "This sanctions
regime, if passed by the Security Council will bite, and bite in a
significant way."

This joint Asia Society-U.S. Institute of Peace event
will explore how financial sanctions -- an important policy tool for the
Obama administration -- and/or engagement could change North Korean
behavior. Daniel Glaser, Deputy Assistant Secretary for Terrorist
Financing and Financial Crimes at the Department of the Treasury, will
discuss the specific objectives of and progress with the implementation
of U.S.-led financial sanctions. John Park, Senior Research Associate
at the U.S. Institute of Peace, will examine the potential impact of
financial sanctions on North Korea. John Delury, Associate Director of the Center on U.S.-China Relations at Asia Society, will provide an overview of
North Korea's current economic situation and present key findings from
Asia Society's new Task Force report, "North Korea Inside Out: The Case
for Economic Engagement."
