Threats and Coercive Diplomacy: An Ethical Analysis [Full text]
Gregory M. Reichberg and Henrik Syse

The Korean Peninsula: One of America’s Greatest Foreign Policy Challenges, with Christopher R. Hill

There are few, if any, who understand the Korean Peninsula situation better than Ambassador Hill. He served as U.S. ambassador to South Korea and assistant secretary of state for East Asian and Pacific affairs, and was head of the U.S. delegation to the 2005 six-party talks aimed at resolving the North Korean nuclear crisis. In this wise and witty talk he explains where we are today, how we got here, and where we're likely to go in the future.

Molly McKew delves into Russian disinformation campaigns in the U.S. and elsewhere.
