Making Contact - "Avoiding A New Korean War"

While the Korean War ended in 1953 with a temporary armistice, a formal peace treaty was never signed. The United States is still technically at war with North Korea, and tensions between the two countries remain high. Many view North Korea as a strange and rogue country that threatens U.S. security. But others argue that North Korea’s actions have legitimate basis and that historical context is critical to understanding the issues.

On this edition, we look at Korea’s past conflicts and current tensions to understand how to avoid another war in the peninsula.

Featuring: Charles Armstrong, Columbia University’s Associate Professor of Korean Studies; Jade Wu, actress; Paul Liem, President of the Korea Policy Institute; John Feffer, co-director of Foreign Policy In Focus at the Institute for Policy Studies; Jung, Geum Song, Korean War survivor.
