Solving the North Korean Nuclear Challenge

Carnegie’s scholars have worked for years—behind the scenes and publicly—to provide analyses of the North Korean nuclear challenge and recommendations on how to solve it. These scholars come from the United States, China, Japan, South Korea, Russia, and Israel, and their views reflect this international perspective. They seek to describe reality as fairly as they can and prescribe policy innovations as constructively as they can, without prejudice toward any one party or country. A selection of their most recent work is below.
