Virtual Event | Redesigning Contingency Planning Mechanisms in Northeast Asia

This event will premiere on this page at 12:00 p.m. EDT, Thursday, April 21. Register for the event here.

Join Hudson Institute Japan Chair H.R. McMaster and expert panelists Harry B. Harris Jr., Ken Jimbo, and In-bum Chun for a discussion on redesigning contingency planning mechanisms on the Korean Peninsula.

Today’s contingency planning and crisis management mechanisms on the Korean Peninsula were designed during the Korean War. However, since then, North Korea has developed strategies and capabilities that seek to undermine trilateral cooperation between the U.S., Republic of Korea, and Japan. In light of these changes in the security environment, it is time to develop contingency planning and crisis management mechanisms in the region to appropriately reflect the risks and burdens that each country will bear. Please join our expert panel for this important discussion.
