The North Korean Crisis: On the Brink of a Breakthrough or a Bust?

The planned meeting between President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un took the world by surprise. This diplomatic opening is a positive and necessary step forward toward addressing the nuclear threat from North Korea, but the upcoming diplomatic process—and especially the summit meeting—are a minefield for the United States and its allies. What does it all mean, what should the United States do now, and what comes next? For analysis on recent developments on North Korea, please join the Center for American Progress for an event with former senior government officials and North Korea experts.
