The UN first placed North Korea under international sanctions 15 years ago. Yet despite continued provocations and clear evidence of violations, there have been no substantive changes to the sanctions regime for the past five years. Is it time to rethink our sanctions approach to North Korea?
CFCS’s Sasha Erskine and Aaron Arnold are joined by Alastair Morgan, former UK Ambassador to the Democratic People's Republic of Korea, to examine the evolution of North Korea sanctions, the current state of play, and what we might expect in the future.
