North Korea: Containing the Threats From a Rogue Regime Conference at St. Mary’s University

The graduate International Relations Department’s second conference on North Korea will bring leading scholars and researchers together from across the United States. With the importance of the United States military in San Antonio and strengthening of economic ties with Japan and South Korea, this will be a timely conference. This illustrates that St. Mary’s University is preparing students to serve the U.S. and/or multinational corporations globally.

One of the key organizers of the conference is William Newcomb who received his M.A. in Economics from St. Mary’s. He has specialized in analyzing North Korea for 30 years and chaired an interagency governmental committee analyzing North Korea’s nuclear program, its organized syndicates, the counterfeiting of U.S. currency, and the global laundering of money and drugs. When he left the U.S. government, Newcomb served on the United Nations Security Council Panel of Experts on North Korea. Diplomatic, military and human rights experts will round out the panels, making for diverse and robust discussion.
