He will undertake work on policies adopted by the leftist government in South Korea and their implications for the U.S.–South Korean alliance; Chinese and North Korean efforts to drive a wedge between the United States and South Korea; and changing U.S. attitudes and views regarding the alliance. The project’s findings will be presented in a variety of products, including a single-author book, a series of reports, and policy briefings.
