Dr. Narushige Michishita, "The History of North Korea’s Brinkmanship Diplomacy: An Evaluation," Lecture of Opportunity, Naval War College, Dec. 8, 2015. Synopsis: North Korea has been actively using force to achieve its policy objectives since the mid-1960s. Some observers think that the leaders in Pyongyang are extremely good at using force. However, a closer look at the history of North Korea’s brinkmanship diplomacy reveals that the results are mixed at best.

Previously, he served as senior research fellow at the National Institute for Defense Studies (NIDS), Ministry of Defense and assistant counsellor at the Cabinet Secretariat for Security and Crisis Management of the Government of Japan. A specialist in Japanese security and foreign policy as well as security issues on the Korean Peninsula, his works include North Korea's Military-Diplomatic Campaigns, 1966-2008 (Routledge, 2009).
