While the world is transfixed by the nuclear weapons crisis in North Korea, potential trouble is brewing to the south. For decades, South Korea has relied on the U.S. nuclear umbrella as protection against North Korea. But as dictator Kim Jong Un moves ever closer to acquiring long range nuclear weapons, a rising chorus of hawkish voices in South Korea is calling for the development of its own nuclear arsenal.

Moderated by Hunter College Distinguished Lecturer Sissel McCarthy.
