Tensions between North and South Korea have repeatedly escalated and deescalated since the signing of the Armistice Agreement in 1953 . For decades, the Peninsula could be described as a tinder box that a small spark can quickly ignite and in 2006, North Korea tested its first nuclear device. So what is different now? Colonel Dan Friend, Senior Army Fellow with Kellogg and former Deputy Chief of Staff to United States Forces Korea, will provide insight on these topics and field questions.

The Buffett Institute Faculty & Fellows Colloquium brings together an interdisciplinary audience to build awareness of global research on campus. This series promotes dialogue on scholarship and develops a deeper sense of community among Buffett Institute affiliates. Each meeting lasts one hour; lunch is provided. Due to space constraints, we will not admit attendees once the space reaches capacity.
