Briefing | North Korea: Crisis in waiting


Dragonfly is hosting a briefing looking at rising military tensions in the Korean Peninsula and the implications of a potential security crisis there for the region.

Military tensions between North and South Korea are at their highest in years. Pyongyang launched a record number of missiles in 2022, including on 31 December, and the current diplomatic environment seems particularly conducive to a short-term crisis. With no signs that the US is likely to abandon its precondition of denuclearisation, the North will probably try to trigger a crisis as a way to pressure the US into talks on its own terms or achieve a shift in the US policy.

In this briefing, we will cover: 

  • What a crisis in the Korean peninsula would look like
  • What such a crisis would mean for civil aviation in the region
  • The likelihood of full-scale military conflict
  • Current considerations for evacuation

There will also be an opportunity for attendees to pose questions to our panel.

Please note that places are limited and preference will be given to Dragonfly clients.

Date: Thursday, 12 January
Time: 1100hrs EST | 1600hrs GMT | 1700hrs CET | 2000hrs GST
