TITLE: 2019 Outlook on the North Korea Crisis
SUBTITLE: Where do we go from here?
The current crisis on the Korean Peninsula, which is the latest iteration of the long-term standoff between the US, South Korea, and North Korea has been going on for nearly two years now. It is without question the main security risk to all companies operating in or relying on the Northeast Asia region today.
This forecast covers the current state of the North Korea-related crisis on the Korean Peninsula, the outlook for 2019, and an analysis of the possible ways the crisis could develop.
The focus of this report, like the focus of all of Erudite Risk’s intelligence products is on the crisis, itself, rather than on North Korea, or the leadership of the different actors involved. Our reports focus on crisis management, trigger and indicator analysis, understanding crisis logic, and crisis response, rather than on specific information about North Korea.
