Did North Korea really test the bomb? Wasn't the North Korean state supposed to collapse like the communist regimes in Warsaw, Bucharest, and East Berlin? How is it that the North Korean state survived the collapse of its Soviet trading partner, several years of extreme famine in the mid-1990s, and then the containment-plus tactics of the Bush administration? Now, are there really only "bad" and "worse" solutions to the "North Korea problem"?

To discuss these and related questions concerning Korea, East Asia, and U.S.-Korea relations, Stanford faculty and students are invited to a two hour town-hall type of meeting, hosted by the Shorenstein Asia Pacific Research Center (SAPARC) in collaboration with Alliance of Scholars Concerned about Korea (ASCK).

This important and timely conversation will begin with introductory remarks from four distinguished panelists: Bruce Cumings, University of Chicago, John Lewis, Stanford University, Jae Jung Suh, Cornell University. The program will be moderated by Dan Sneider, a long time journalist and columnist on Asian affairs.
