Crises in U.S. - North Korean Relations - Dealing with an Enigmatic, Hostile Power
This program places participants in the shoes of national security decision-makers facing major crises with North Korea. The first crisis is the Korean War, where our group will review the historical context, the players, and organizations involved. The second crisis is hypothetical but a very plausible, present-day scenario where U.S. and North Korean relations deteriorate and threaten to escalate into a major conflict. The heart of the class is role-playing through a simulated National Security Council (NSC) meeting, designed to have participants suggest and discuss courses of action for the President. Background readings and supportive materials are easily accessible through the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) website as well as provided by the course leader. John Fogarasi is both a lecturer and practitioner of U.S. foreign policy, having taught political science/international affairs earlier in his career and later as a senior U.S. Diplomat for over 30 years with assignments in Europe, Asia and North America. From 2002-2006, John served as Minister-Counselor at the U.S. Embassy to South Korea.
