Speaker: Mr Aidan Foster-Carter

Chair:  Professor Arne Westad

Thursday 4 October 2012, 6:30-8:00PM COL 2.01

The emergence of Kim Jong-un as North Korea's new leader will have a significant impact on international affairs in East Asia. What kind of changes are likely, and what could be their impact on the wider region? Kim Jong-Il has cast a long shadow over the strategic balance in North East Asia. IDEAS East Asia Programme hosts this exclusive lecture with one of the very best Korean experts in the UK. We aim to disentangle his demise and its crucial impact on security of North East Asia
