The Northeast Asia Cooperative Security Project supports efforts to form a cooperative security community in Northeast Asia. Begun in 1995, the project has conducted several Track II diplomatic initiatives, bringing together representatives from North Korea, South Korea, Japan, China and Russia who are interested in working in an unofficial capacity to negotiate an end to North Korea’s nuclear and missile programs. The project also aims to educate publics in both the United States and Northeast Asia through lectures, publications, and mainstream media appearances.
