Sanctions and Engagement -- How to Change North Korea's Behavior

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."
