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.
