North Korea’s Inner Court Politics and the Future of Succession
In this episode we speak with Mr. Ken E. Gause, currently a senior research analyst with the International Affairs Group and Iranian Studies Program at CNA Strategic Studies in Alexandria, Virginia. In our conversation we focus primarily on North Korean succession, its current state, and implications for the future. Mr. Gause has published a number of articles, book chapters, and papers on North Korean military and leadership including “The North Korean Leadership: System Dynamics and Fault Lines,” in North Korean Policy Elites by Kongdan Oh Hassig, et al. and “North Korean Civil-Military Trends: Military-First Politics to a Point,” published by the Strategic Studies Institute at the United States Army War College.
