The Conflict Prevention and Resolution Forum (CPRF) invites to you USIP on December 1 for an in-depth conversation on North Korea with former Labour Party member of the European Parliament Glyn Ford, and former Special Envoy for Six-Party Talks with North Korea, Ambassador Joseph R. DeTrani. USIP’s Senior Expert for North Korea Frank Aum will moderate.

With nearly 40 trips to North Korea and just back from his most recent trip, Mr. Ford will address security tensions between the United States and North Korea, the situation on the ground in North Korea, and the value of Track 2 non-governmental engagements with North Korea.

The conversation takes place from 1:30-2:45pm on December 1 at USIP, 2301 Constitution Avenue NW, Washington DC.

This event will be immediately followed by a live radio broadcast town hall hosted by The Takeaway’s Tod Zwellich and featuring Glyn Ford, Frank Aum, Jean Lee, and Anthony Ruggiero as panelists. CPRF attendees are encouraged to first attend the in-depth discussion on North Korea with Glyn Ford and stay through the afternoon for a more wide-ranging discussion on diplomacy and nuclear policy in the town hall. To attend the town hall, please register separately on USIP’s website here.

The Conflict Prevention and Resolution Forum (CPRF)

Since 1999, the Conflict Prevention and Resolution Forum has provided a monthly platform in Washington for highlighting innovative and constructive methods of conflict resolution. CPRF’s goals are to (1) provide information from a wide variety of perspectives; (2) explore possible solutions to complex conflicts; and (3) provide a secure venue for stakeholders from various disciplines to engage in cross-sector and multi-track problem-solving. The CPRF is traditionally hosted at SAIS and organized by the Conflict Management Program in conjunction with Search for Common Ground and is co-sponsored by a consortium of organizations that specialize in conflict resolution and/or public policy formulation.
