  Please find the video for this event below.     International Sanctions and Economic Relations with North Korea Featuring: William Brown  Adjunct Professor, Georgetown University Li Tingting Assistant Professor, Peking University Troy Stangarone Senior Director of Congressional Affairs and Trade, Korea Economic Institute Liudmila Zakharova Senior Researcher, Center for Korean Studies, Russian Academy of Science, Institute of Far Eastern Studies   Moderated by: Stephan Haggard Director, Korea-Pacific Program  and Distinguished Professor of Political Science at the School of Global Policy and Strategy at UC San Diego   New sanctions on North Korea in response to the recent nuclear test and long range missile launch promise to be the most punitive measures yet, though will not completely sever external economic ties. Russia and China have taken a more stern approach to follow the U.S. and South Korea lead in the U.N., but will still continue to engage economically with the rogue state. Seoul’s decision to close the Kaesong Industrial Complex marked the end of the largest Inter-Korean economic project, raising a number of questions as to whether ties can ever be reestablished and under what conditions. Although Japan has had minimal economic interaction with North Korea, normalization of relations with South Korea in 1960s presents a blueprint that could be attractive to both Tokyo and Pyongyang, but require a number of contingencies to be addressed first.   Understanding the magnitude of North Korea’s economic relationships in the region as well as the impact of new constraints are vital to gauge the direction of ongoing trends with a country increasingly cut off from the global economy. This panel explores these economic ties with North Korea from the perspective of partners and potential partners in Northeast Asia.

Please scroll down for the full video recording of this event.   Pacific Partners: Prospects for Cooperation Between the United States, Korea, and Japan   As the United States looks to engage the Asia-Pacific under the Obama administration and future administrations, South Korea and Japan remain two key partners for the United States in Asia. With relations improving between South Korea and Japan after a rocky period, there is increasing potential for trilateral cooperation. Please join KEI and the Mansfield Foundation for a discussion of the prospects for future cooperation between United States, South Korea, and Japan on security and economic issues.
