CANCELLED: The Dealmaker

Who will make peace happen?

Four months have passed since the U.S.-North Korea summit in Singapore, and the world is no closer to understanding the relationship between Donald Trump and Kim Jong-un. Why did the meeting between the two leaders even happen, and how does Moon Jae-in, the South Korean president, figure into the relationship? What's really happening between North Korea, the United States, and South Korea? What are the prospects for peace on the Korean Peninsula going forward—and who will make that peace happen?

Join Suki Kim, ASU Future of War Fellow, & Dr. Sue Mi Terry, Senior Fellow for Korea at CSIS, as they seek to address these questions, among others. They will be joined by Theodore Ross, the Executive Editor of the New Republic magazine.

Suki Kim's feature on the issue appears in the New Republic's November issue. To explain the Singapore Summit, she traveled to South Korea to answer some of the questions posed above. She is the author of the New York Times Bestseller, Without You, There Is No Us: Undercover Among the Sons of North Korea's Elite, and a contributing editor at the New Republic.

Dr. Sue-Mi Terry is a Senior Fellow for Korea at the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS). Prior to joining CSIS, she had a long and distinguished career in intelligence, policymaking, and academia following Korean issues. Dr. Terry served as a Senior Analyst on Korean issues at the CIA from 2001 to 2008.
