Report Launch and Discussion: Second Order Threats from North Korea's Nuclear Weapons Program
The National Committee on North Korea and the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace convened a two-day workshop featuring seven experts from the United States, China, and Russia. The workshop considered a range of “second order” threats associated with North Korea’s nuclear weapons program regarding potential unintended consequences of an evolving North Korean command-and-control structure and prospects and consequences of a nuclear accident in North Korea.

Since the conclusion of the workshop, these challenges have been heightened by public emphasis on South Korean so-called “Kill Chain” and “Massive Punishment and Retaliation” systems to preemptively counter a North Korean nuclear attack and to strike North Korean leadership targets. North Korea has simultaneously taken steps to bolster its own nuclear security by renewing missile and nuclear weapons development and revising its nuclear doctrine to outline cases for a preemptive strike and address vulnerabilities of its command and control system. 

Please join the National Committee on North Korea (NCNK) and the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace for a Webinar Discussion with Ankit Panda, Keith Luse, and Jenny Town to discuss the workshop report and recent developments surrounding the nuclear risk environment on the Korean Peninsula.
