John Nilsson-Wright Chairs panel on Assessing North Korea's Nuclear Capabilities

last modified Nov 21, 2016 03:26 PM

North Korea has recently conducted its fifth nuclear test and is now thought to have a stockpile of around 20 devices. The size of the resulting earthquakes from the country's test site have increased, indicating that the devices are becoming increasingly more powerful.  As a result, its nuclear weapons and missile programmes have come under further international scrutiny.

Dr John Nilsson-Wright, University Senior Lecturer in Modern Japanese Politics and International Relations and Senior Research Fellow for Northeast Asia in the Asia Programme at Chatham House chaired a panel discussion at Chatham House to analyse whether the latest nuclear test is a game changer in terms of how North Korea’s neighbours and the wider international community view the country’s nuclear ambitions. A podcast of the discussion is now available on the Chatham House website.
