Dr. Lee, a Kim Koo-Korea Foundations Professor of Korean Studies and Assistant Professor at The Fletcher School, will present "Countering North Korea's Carrot-and-Stick Strategy."

North Korea is possibly the most influential state in history commensurate with its economic power. The backward, weird, cult-like dynasty has reaped billions of dollars in concessions from the world's biggest powers in the post-Cold War period alone. 2017 was a banner year for North Korea, marked by several milestones: The nation's most powerful nuclear test to date in September, two successful inter-continental ballistic missile tests in July, a powerful ICBM test in November, and three successful intermediate-range ballistic missile tests between May and September. Why did North Korean leader Kim Jong Un dramatically change his tune in 2018 and hold summit meetings with Donald Trump, Xi Jinping, and Moon Jae-In? Can we live with a nuclear North Korea? 

Dr. Lee is a former Associate in Research at the Korea Institute, Harvard University, and former Research Fellow of the inaugural National Asia Research Program, a joint initiative by the National Bureau of Asian Research and the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars. His essays on the international politics of the Korean peninsula and Northeast Asia have been published multiple times in the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Washington Post, LA Times, Foreign Affairs, Foreign Policy, Christian Science Monitor,, The Hill, etc.. In 2013, the Guardian called Lee “[a]mong the most insightful and prescient chroniclers.”
