The North Korean nuclear crisis is a critical international security concern affecting US interests, allies, and partners in the Asia-Pacific region. For years, it has been widely debated in policy circles in both Washington, DC and abroad, and yet the individuals that stand to be most impacted by the threat are often overlooked as concerns with regional national security and economic stability take international precedence. The North Korean nuclear crisis has a direct impact on the security and safety of ordinary citizens around the world, and yet the voice of the citizen can only reach the ear of the political decision maker through the media. For this event, the Atlantic Council will convene journalists from the United States, Japan, the Republic of Korea, China, and Europe to discuss the impact and implications of North Korea’s nuclear threat on ordinary citizens. This panel of media professionals will discuss the perspectives of the general public, how well-heard the average citizen is, and how these opinions influence the decisions of policy makers within their respective countries.
