Bush Institute Experts Discuss North Korea on KERA
Amanda Schnetzer , Director of the Bush Institute's Global Initiatives, and Lindsay Lloyd , Deputy Director of the Human Freedom Initiative, joined Kris Boyd on KERA's Think program this week to discuss how the U.S. should handle the growing threat of North Korea.
â€śThese two issues that we're talking about - human rights and the security challenge posed by a potentially nuclear North Korea...are inextricably linked and need to be dealt with on more parallel footing,â€ť said Schnetzer. â€śIf we weren't paying attention before, it's time to pay attention now.â€ť
North Korea's unprecedented and accelerating tempo of missile tests and nuclear detonations shows no signs of fading, but denuclearization cannot be pursued or attained without addressing the human rights abuses in the country. Schnetzer and Lloyd described the history of the regime and ongoing challenges and offered policy recommendations for the way forward.
