South Korea’s nuclear armament debate received renewed attention in 2023. But, this issue is one that has animated Korean politics, both domestic and international, for the past five decades. To explore this multifaceted issue, KEI brought together 13 young, up-and-coming experts to cover the South Korean nuclear weapons debate from 12 angles—the historical background, the domestic discourse, and the international implications. On Wednesday, March 15, KEI will host a conference featuring our various contributors’ work at our Washington, D.C. office and launch a compilation of all the pieces in a single, special KEI publication.
In-person seating is limited, please RSVP to reserve your seat.
