Please join us for a Public Seminar by Marcus Noland, Senior Fellow, East-West Center and Executive Vice President and Director of Studies, Peterson Institute for International Economics

Marcus Noland will evaluate the effectiveness of sanctions against North Korea and how the outside world could potentially have influence over the regime-- the topic of a new book by Noland and Stephan Haggard called Hard Target: Sanctions, Inducements and the Case of North Korea (Stanford University Press.) The book captures the effects of sanctions and inducements on North Korea and provides a detailed analysis of the role of economic incentives in the bargaining around the country's nuclear program.

Marcus Noland is a non-resident Senior Fellow at the East-West Center. He has been associated with the Peterson Institute since 1985. His research addresses a wide range of topics at the interstice of economics, political science, and international relations. His areas of geographical knowledge and interest include Asia and Africa where he has lived and worked, and the Middle East. He has written extensively on the economies of Japan, Korea, and China, and is unique among American economists in having devoted serious scholarly effort to the problems of North Korea and the prospects for Korean unification. He won the 2000–01 Ohira Memorial Award for his book Avoiding the Apocalypse: The Future of the Two Koreas.
