[Webinar] Spooky Action at a Distance: U.S. Espionage in East Asia and Beyond
April 28, 2023 — Professor Christian Kaunert from Dublin City University, Dr. Daniel Pinkston from Troy University, and Senior Research Fellow Bruce Klingner from the Heritage Foundation Asian Studies Center, discuss the extensive subject of intelligence and espionage with Asia Society Korea, focusing on the recent intelligence leak in the United States and how US allies should view this issue. Mason Richey, Senior Contributor at Asia Society Korea, facilitated a thorough debate on the wealth of intelligence data that exists in the modern world and went on to further examine the "spooky" concept of how nations spy on one another, on allies, and on adversaries.
The panel actively discussed how intelligence may support nations in asserting, defending, upholding, and advancing their interests as well as the advantages and disadvantages of having in-depth knowledge of state intelligence.
