Past Policy 2020 Event

Iran and North Korea: Proliferation and regional challenges for the next administration

Past Event

Among the numerous and varied foreign policy challenges facing the next administration will be the nuclear proliferation and regional security threats posed by Iran and North Korea. The next administration will need to consider how to build international and domestic support for addressing those threats, whether and when to engage those regimes diplomatically, and the balance between pressure and diplomacy in pursuing U.S. policy objectives.


On Tuesday, October 20, the Foreign Policy program at Brookings hosted an online discussion with experts who previously served as Defense and State Department officials, nuclear negotiators, and intelligence community officers.


Viewers submitted questions via email to or via Twitter at #Policy2020.


Policy 2020 events aim to empower voters with fact-based, data-driven, non-partisan information so they can better understand the policy matters discussed in the 2020 election.
