In the fourth installment of the Nuclear Risk Reduction policy brief series, Tanya Ogilvie-White examines the risk of nuclear weapon use on the Korean Peninsula, linked to the DPRK’s accelerating capabilities, the brinkmanship of the Kim Jung Un regime, and a complex and difficult strategic environment.

Adapted from her chapter in UNIDIR’s recent volume, “Nuclear Risk Reduction: Closing Pathways to Use”.
