Achieving North Korea Denuclearization Through U.N. Security Council? – A New Way of Diplomacy

What's the next step for North Korea's denuclearization after President Trump and Kim Jong Un failed to reach a deal in Vietnam? Would the U.N. Security Council be a viable approach for finding solutions? How does the Security Council work and how do different major players exert their influences?

As a real expert on the U.N., China, and global security issues, Prof. Courtney Fung is here to answer those questions. She’s an Assistant Professor of International Relations in the Department of Politics and Public Administration at the University of Hong Kong. Her forthcoming book, “China and Intervention at the UN Security Council: Reconciling Status”, will be published by Oxford University Press in fall 2019.

We’d like to especially thank Princeton’s Center on Contemporary China for sponsoring this episode and for connecting us with Prof. Fung.
