On 10 October 2017, the GEM STONES Ph.D. School at the Institute for European Studies at Université Libre de Bruxelles (IEE-ULB) hosted a seminar on “North Korea and the Escalation of a Global Crisis: Any Role for the European Union?” The event marked the start of the new academic year as well as bid a farewell to Dr. Tereza Novotna, previously an FNRS Post-doctoral Researcher at REPI, IEE-ULB and current Senior Associate Research Fellow at EUROPEUM, Institute for European Policy whose post-doctoral fellowship in Brussels came to an end while she embarks on her new Korea Foundation-funded research project on the EU-(North) Korea at Seoul National University. The two-hour seminar was co-organized by various units at ULB (GEM-STONES, REPI and EaST) and EUROPEUM Brussels Office.

Confirmed speakers:

The debate was moderated by Prof. Mario Telò (IEE-ULB, LUISS Guido Carli and the Belgian Royal Academy).

Together we discussed what can be done about the situation in North Korea from a short- and long-term perspective and reflected on any potential solutions to the exacerbating global crisis, including various roles for the EU.
