Oct 02, 2017 What South Korea Doesn't Need: Nuclear Submarines
NPEC's Executive Director and Wohlstetter Public Affairs Fellow publish a new piece in The National Interest, "South Korea is about to Make a $7 Billion Nuclear Submarine Blunder,"  about South Korea's interest in developing extremely expensive nuclear submarines, which also raises nuclear proliferation concerns. 
Sep 25, 2017 South Korea's Nuclear Capabilities, Missiles, and the Next War
Zachary Keck, NPEC Wohlstetter Public Affairs Fellow, has published two articles about nuclear weapons in South Korea. The first argues that redeploying U.S. tactical nuclear weapons in South Korea would have no military utility while also undermining alliance relations. The second one, co-authored with NPEC Research Coordinator, Leon Whyte, highlights how South Korea could use its reactor-grade plutonium to build a nuclear weapons arsenal. The first article is "4 Reasons America Shouldn't Send Nuclear Weapons to South Korea or Japan." The second article is "Can South Korea Build a Nuclear Bomb in 6 Months?" Both are posted in their entirety below.

In this op-ed, featured in The Wall Street Journal, NPEC's Executive Director and Zachary Keck examine the security implications of North Korea's recent test of a 300-1,000 kilometer range Scud missile with a maneuvering reentry vehicle. The piece analyzes how the further spread of this missile technology to hostile nations and terror groups threatens the security of the United States and its allies and what the U.S. should do about it.

Mar 09, 2017 North Korea: Getting Beyond Tactical (Weapons) Measures
In this op-ed, featured in The Wall Street Journal, NPEC's Executive Director examines the merits of deploying tactical nuclear weapons. After dialogue and sanctions proved unable to rein in North Korea's nuclear and missile programs, tactical nukes may sound prudent to American ears. But South Korean officials this week made it clear that they are anything but eager to see these weapons redeployed. The U.S. would be foolish to ignore their concerns. Redeployment would be a huge mistake.
