The All-Party Parliamentary Group on North Korea invites you to attend an event titled, ‘Sanctioning North Korea‘, with Andrea Berger (Senior Research Fellow and Deputy Director of the Proliferation and Nuclear Policy at the Royal United Services Institute) and Maya Lester (Brick Court Chambers).

Andrea Berger will discuss the latest North Korean nuclear test and what we know; North Korea’s military customers; whether sanctions on DPRK are working; and whether there is anything left to sanction.

Maya Lester will discuss the EU sanctions regime and how this relates to individuals; the supporting evidence required for sanctions; an individual’s due process rights (especially those that differ from the US, where a sanctions bill may soon be passed on DPRK), and the presumption of innocence.

The event will take place at 17:00 on Monday 18th January in Committee Room 11, the Houses of Parliament.

Attendance is free and open to the public. The Houses of Parliament can be accessed via the Cromwell Green visitor entrance.
