The Six-Party Talks: 7th Round - Peace and Security in Korea
When North Korea pulled out of the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons in 2003, it triggered a series of multilateral negotiations that would come to be known as the Six Party Talks. The talks, named for the six negotiating countries, went sour in 2009 following North Korea’s departure from discussions, kicking off years of strained and unproductive relations between the former negotiators. However, ten years later, in the context of an increasingly complex international security ecosystem, all six parties have agreed to return to the drawing board and attempt to reach common ground. Delegates will have the opportunity to use their diplomatic finesse and problem solving while representing the negotiators of the six parties, all in the hopes of reconciling the economic and security concerns preventing a deal. Topics will of course include the North Korean nuclear program, as well as the multitude of interlocking issues surrounding it: economic sanctions, military exercises, trade relations, economic development, cybersecurity and the like.
The background guide and character list will become available soon.
