February 8, North Korea: Getting Diplomacy Back on Track
Suzanne DiMaggio, senior fellow, Carnegie Endowment for International Peace
After a historical summit between Donald Trump and Kim Jong Un in 2018, hopes of a change in relations have faded. Now, with a new president entering the White House, landslide legislative victories in South Korea, and rumors of an unwell Kim, do new dynamics have the potential to change a perennially thorny situation? Join our speaker Suzanne DiMaggio as she highlights the prospects of diplomacy on the Korean Peninsula.
DiMaggio is a senior fellow at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, where she focuses on U.S. foreign policy toward the Middle East and Asia. She is one of the foremost experts and practitioners of diplomatic dialogues with countries that have limited or no official relations with the United States, especially Iran and North Korea. She is also the Board Chair of the Quincy Institute for Responsible Statecraft, a new think tank founded in 2019 she co-founded.
She is currently directing a U.S.-DPRK dialogue that has included several visits to North Korea. As part of that process, she facilitated the first official discussions between the Trump administration and North Korean government representatives in Oslo in May 2017.
