Event details
Details Media coverage of the second Abe Cabinet has conglomerated around its currency policy, but less attention has been paid to the possible changes in Japan's policies towards North Korea under the new government. This talk analyzes the old, the new, the familiar, and the uncanny in Japan's policies towards North Korea from 2009 to the present.
