Verifiable denuclearization is an impossible goal, not just because Kim Jong Un may not agree, but because such a deal couldn't be fully verified if he did. But this doesn't mean there is no deal worth making for America.
The RAND Center for Asia Pacific Policy (CAPP) brings multidisciplinary, analytic, and regional expertise to the key policy issues of the Asia Pacific. CAPP’s mission is to improve policy by providing decisionmakers and the public with rigorous and objective research on critical policy challenges facing Asia and U.S.-Asia relations.
Many of our research projects are funded by financial support from individuals, foundations, and government agencies. This funding allows CAPP—a nonprofit, nonpartisan, multidisciplinary research center—to explore a wide range of issues impacting the Asia Pacific.Learn More about CAPP
Each year, CAPP selects fellows to take up a 12-month residence at RAND, during which they work on research projects and take two elective courses at the Pardee RAND Graduate School.Learn More about Asia Pacific Fellows
