How Peaceful Might East Asia’s Civil Nuclear Programs Be?


With recent North Korean nuclear saber rattling and the military rise of China, talk has turned to whether or not South Korea and Japan should go nuclear. How easy or difficult would it be for Japan and South Korea to exploit their civilian nuclear infrastructure to make bombs? How might China react and what might it do to bolster its nuclear capabilities? Come join us to find out at a presentation by Henry Sokolski, executive director of the Nonproliferation Policy Education Center.

Lunch with be provided.

This event is sponsored by GPS’s Korea-Pacific Program and the UC San Diego Center for Peace and Security Studies (cPASS).
