North Korea’s Changing State and Society
North Korea is identified by foreign policy experts as one of the most significant challenges facing the United States today. Noble Horizon invites you to learn more about this enigmatic nation on May 10 at 7 pm with Jonathan Corrado, Director of Policy at The Korea Society. Corrado will discuss the changing nature of North Korea, how its citizens navigate life amidst the world’s lowest-ranked economy, extreme isolation, and a repressive central government that is escalating its production of nuclear missiles and weapons of mass destruction.
Corrado regularly writes and speaks about security, diplomacy, and socioeconomic change on the Korean Peninsula. He recently co-authored a report titled “Making North Korea Creditworthy: How it will finance its post-nuclear development,” and a scoping paper for the United Nations Program in Support of Peace and Cooperation in Northeast Asia. He has presented at international relations conferences hosted by Oxford, Harvard, and Johns Hopkins universities, as well as in Beijing, DC, and Brussels. His work has been published in Foreign Affairs and Foreign Policy among others; he was a Pacific Forum CSIS Young Leader and received an MA from Georgetown University’s Asian Studies Program in the Walsh School of Foreign Service.
