Event description
Featuring Frank Aum, Senior Expert on North Korea, U.S. Institute of Peace

About this Event

After the collapse of U.S.-DPRK negotiations, it appears likely that relations between the two countries will take a downward turn and tensions will heighten on the Korean Peninsula. With North Korea unlikely to give up its nuclear weapons in the near-term and the U.S. insistence on maintaining a rigid sanctions regime against North Korea, what are the prospects for peace and denuclearization on the Korean Peninsula?

Speaker Biography

Frank Aum is the senior expert on North Korea at the U.S. Institute of Peace, and is the lead author of USIP’s recent publication entitled “A Peace Regime for the Korean Peninsula.” From 2010-2017, Mr. Aum served as a senior advisor on the Korean Peninsula in the Office of the Secretary of Defense. During this time, he advised four Secretaries of Defense on issues related to Northeast Asia and the Korean Peninsula. Mr. Aum also served as head of delegation for working level negotiations in Seoul with the Republic of Korea (ROK), and received the Secretary of Defense Medal for Outstanding Public Service.

Mr. Aum previously worked as a corporate attorney, and also has extensive experience in the public and non-profit sectors. He completed a Fulbright Scholarship in Jeju Island, South Korea and worked as a speechwriter in the South Korean Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade. In addition, he worked to strengthen the Koreatown community in Los Angeles at the city’s Department of Neighborhood Empowerment and the Korean American Coalition (KAC).

Mr. Aum received his B.A. from Dartmouth College, his MPP from Harvard University's Kennedy School of Government, and his JD from the University of California, Berkeley.
