The Korean Peninsula after Kim Jong-Il: Uncertainties, Challenges and Opportunities

December 20, 2011 – On Tuesday, December 20, 2011, KEI hosted a panel discussion on the future of the Korean Peninsula after the death of North Korea's leader, Kim Jong Il on December 17, 2011.

With the unexpected death of Kim Jong-Il, the political future of North Korea and regional security are uncertain. What is the prospect of Kim Jong-un securing control over the regime? What is the likelihood of instability on the Korean peninsula? What does this mean for the future of North Korea’s denuclearization?
