Dr. Van Jackson recently wrote an Op/Ed on “Breaking the North Korea Arms Control Taboo” for The Diplomat.

In the article, he states that “there’s a highly ingrained taboo against arms control when it comes to North Korea, and it’s so strong that it risks blinding rational alliance decision-making.” He also describes the pros and cons of adding this topic to discussions between North Korea and South Korea or the United States.
