Event Description

COVID-19 has become an unexpected variable in the U.S.-North Korea relationship. The virus has had a significant impact on both countries and may be one factor in North Korean reluctance to resume negations with the United States along with the impending U.S. presidential election. How should the United States manage North Korea policy prior to the election and after?

Markus V. Garlauskas is an independent strategic analyst who has specialized in North Korea for two decades. He led the U.S. intelligence community’s strategic analysis on North Korea as the National Intelligence Officer for North Korea from July 2014 to June 2020. Prior to that, he spent twelve years with U.S. Forces Korea (USFK). Follow him on Twitter @Mister_G_2.

This event will be livestreamed on Zoom with an interactive Q&A session.
