International Education Week: North Korean Denuclearization: What Might it Look Like?

Harper Center, 3rd Floor, Room 3027

Friday, November 16, 2018 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

The event aims to update and educate the Creighton and Omaha Communities on the critical issues of US-North Korea relations. From a geopolitical perspective, reduction of the hostile tension between DPRK and the US, along with its allies, is a most important issue.

For over three decades, North Korea, South Korea and the international community have discussed the possibility of de-nuclearization on the Korean Peninsula. In 1991, with the Cold War coming to an end, forever eliminating the presence of nuclear capabilities on the Peninsula seemed within reach. Unfortunately, Pyongyang disregarded international opinion and pursued nuclear capabilities at great costs to its own people. In the three decades since, North Korea has invested considerable fortune to develop its nuclear and missile programs.
