“I use ‘disruptive’ in both its good and bad connotations. Disruptive scientific and technological progress is not to me inherently good or inherently evil. But its arc is for us to shape. Technology’s progress is furthermore in my judgment unstoppable. But it is quite incorrect that it unfolds inexorably according to its own internal logic and the laws of nature.”
Speaker: John Park, Director of the Korea Working Group and Adjunct Lecturer in Public Policy, Harvard Kennedy School
Moderator: Susan Pharr, Edwin O. Reischauer Professor of Japanese Politics and Director, WCFIA Program on U.S.-Japan Relations, Harvard University
In this seminar, Dr. John Park will examine the Democratic People's Republic of Korea's (DPRK) missile and nuclear capabilities and strategic behavior; recent developments in the Republic of Korea's (ROK) policies toward DPRK; and the evolving policy debate in Japan, China, and the United States in response to the latest developments on the Korean Peninsula.
