[Rebroadcast] Achieving Peace through Sanctions: Stephan Haggard
The second summit between President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un on February 27 and 28 ended without an agreement. The key difference in the two leaders’ negotiating positions appears to have been over sanctions relief. If negotiations continue, further discussions on the sequence of sanctions relief are sure to arise.
At this moment, we wanted to rebroadcast an episode from December 2016, just as the United Nations was escalating sanctions against North Korea in response to their fourth nuclear test in January of that year. KEI’s Troy Stangarone sat down with one of the foremost experts on North Korean sanctions, Dr. Stephan Haggard, distinguished professor of political science and director of the Korea-Pacific Program at the school of global policy and strategy at the University of California San Diego. Their discussion explores the strengths and limitations of the sanctions regime, alongside what the international body hopes to achieve as a result.
