    Live in Japan long enough and you’ll see plenty of news articles about North Korea’s missile testing. Perhaps you even heard the emergency alert system earlier this year. How worried should we be about this unruly neighbor country? What does the political relationship, or lack thereof, look like between Japan and North Korea, and what implications does the North Korean threat have on Japan? Dr. Ryo Hinata-Yamaguchi, an expert in Indo-Pacific security issues and North Korean military affairs, will share his research with us. His presentation will be followed by a 30-minute Q&A session.
