Is North Korea entering a dangerous new period of brinkmanship?

Item Summary

Title:Is North Korea entering a dangerous new period of brinkmanship?
Authors:Noland, Marcus
Date Issued:25 Sep 2020
Publisher:Honolulu, HI : East-West Center
Abstract:This week, the South Korean government announced that a government official had been killed by North Korean forces near the maritime border between the two countries, his body burned and dumped into the sea. The official was thought to be attempting to defect, and the North Koreans apparently feared coronavirus infection.

In a new commentary, noted observer Marcus Noland writes: "While the horrifying particulars could not be foreseen, the notion that North Korea would engage in low-level provocations in the run-up to the US election was entirely predictable. What remains to be seen is whether the magnitude of provocations will dramatically grow afterward."
