In Cased You Missed It:
Webinar on the NPT and Security Dynamics in Northeast Asia

Earlier this month, APLN hosted webinars based on expert papers commissioned for the special issue of the Korean Journal on Nuclear Nonproliferation and Energy. APLN members analyzed the NPT’s impact on security dynamics in Northeast Asia assessing the responsibilities of nuclear weapons states vis-à-vis their disarmament commitments, the relevancy of the NPT, and the prospects of a Nuclear-Weapon-Free Zone in Northeast Asia. Summaries of the discussions can be found here.





Last month, APLN co-hosted special online Jeju Forum sessions on emerging technologies, US-China relations, managing the nexus of existential risks, and the DPRK nuclear quagmire. These panels feature many APLN members and leading experts, including Chair Gareth Evans; Vice-Chair Moon Chung-in; Board Members Kim Sung-hwan, Tuya Nyamosor, Tong Zhao, and Manpreet Sethi; Research Director Peter Hayes; and APLN Members Jishe Fan, Bong-geun Jun, and Dingli Shen. In case you missed it, the sessions are available to watch online.
