Dr John Nilsson-Wright

Former Korea Foundation Korea Fellow and Senior Fellow for Northeast Asia, Asia-Pacific Programme

Over the course of five episodes, all published this week, John Nilsson-Wright explores the strategic relations of Korea, asking how the country is seeking to protect its interests in an increasingly contested Pacific region.

In the first episode, John is joined by Jennifer Lind to discuss the key challenges facing Korean policymakers today, including the threat of the DPRK, China’s growing influence over the region and the shifting priorities of the incoming Biden administration in the United States.
