North Korea: What’s Next

the_statues_of_kims

There are no good solutions to the escalating problem of North Korea. How did we get here and what are the options? Two North Korea experts offer their views.

On March 24 at 11 am, Noble Horizons will host Melanie Kirkpatrick, a Senior Fellow at the Hudson Institute and former Deputy Editor of the Wall Street Journal’s editorial page and Jack David, Senior Fellow and Member of the Board of Trustees at the Hudson Institute and the Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Combating Weapons of Mass Destruction and Negotiations Policy under the Bush administration. Kirkpatrick and David will be discussing North Korea.

Kirkpatrick was a long time member of the Wall Street Journal’s editorial board and wrote editorials and op-ed articles on foreign affairs. As Deputy Editor, she was responsible for the editorial page's coverage of international issues and oversaw the paper’s opinion pages in Asia and Europe, the Far Eastern Economic Review and the U.S. columnists on foreign affairs. Her 2012 book, Escape from North Korea: The Untold Story of Asia's Underground Railroad, offers a rigorous account of the repression and quest for freedom under the Kim regime. Kirkpatrick is a graduate of Princeton University, and contributes reviews and commentary to various publications, in addition to serving as a member of the Council on Foreign Relations and the Human Freedom Advisory Council of the George W. Bush Presidential Center.

Jack David is an independent consultant on national security matters, especially combating weapons of mass destruction. Upon stepping down from his position in the Bush administration, he was awarded the Secretary of Defense Outstanding Public Service Award. Mr. David has a long involvement with international human rights issues; he was one of the founders of the Lawyers Committee for International Human Rights, he served as a delegate to a working group of the UN Human Rights Commission and was a director of the International League for Human Rights. He has served as chair of the board of directors and vice president of the Association of the Bar of the City of New York and is a member of the Board of Directors of the Committee for Human Rights in North Korea, an honorary member of The National Unification Advisory Council of the Republic of Korea and a member of the Council on Foreign Relations.
