PLEASE NOTE: REMARKS ARE OFF THE RECORD

As the deadlock over denuclearization of the Korean peninsula drags on, both South and North Korea are investing in new missile capabilities and developing operational concepts.  These developments are proceeding with little concern for how they may complicate crisis management. Professor Lewis will explore the possibility that the next crisis on the Peninsula could end very badly indeed.

Before joining the Center for Nonproliferation Studies, Jeffrey Lewis was the Director of the Nuclear Strategy and Nonproliferation Initiative at the New America Foundation.

Prior to that, Lewis was Executive Director of the Managing the Atom Project at the Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs, Executive Director of the Association of Professional Schools of International Affairs, a Visiting Fellow at the Center for Strategic and International Studies and a desk officer in the Office of the Undersecretary of Defense for Policy. He is also a Research Scholar at the Center for International and Security Studies at the University of Maryland's School of Public Policy (CISSM).

Lewis is the author of Minimum Means of Reprisal: China's Search for Security in the Nuclear Age (MIT Press, 2007). He also founded and maintains the leading blog on nuclear arms control and nonproliferation, ArmsControlWonk.com.

Lewis has been an affiliate of the Center for International Security and Cooperation at Stanford University since May 2012. He received his Ph.D. in Policy Studies (International Security and Economic Policy) from the University of Maryland and his B.A. in Philosophy and Political Science from Augustana College in Rock Island, Ill.
