The Geopolitical Implications of North Korea’s Nuclear and Missile Testing Programme

REPORT • May 2017

Tensions have been growing on the Korean Peninsula in early 2017, as North Korea continues testing longer range ballistic missiles. This includes a number of projectiles which have fallen intentionally into the Sea of Japan or those, including the most recent missile launch on 29 April, which have exploded shortly after take-off. Despite other issues around the globe, much of the focus of the Trump White House, and indeed the world’s in 2017, has been on North Korea.
