Young Leaders Program Singapore (YLPSG) Meetup Session: Where do things stand with North Korea?

What is to be made of the increased activity around the Yongbyon nuclear site? How well is North Korea deterred in light of Pyongyang hinting that it could launch long-range missiles to mark the 70th anniversary of the founding of the Workers Party? How would the region deal with a collapse of North Korea? Please join us as we discuss these issues and broader concerns related to the Korean Peninsula.
