Learning from Success: Inter-Korean Crisis Communications
Philip Reiner with Dr. Moon Chung-in
On this episode of the Fourth Leg podcast, we are joined by Dr. Moon Chung-in, who takes us through the historical context behind the many hotlines linking South and North Korea. A widely recognized expert on international relations and East Asian security issues, Dr. Moon brings invaluable insight into the successes and challenges of this system of hotlines. The benefit of having lines of communication between adversarial nations is demonstrated in this inter-Korean case study, giving additional context for why our CATALINK design — a radically simple, secure, and resilient communications system — is necessary for averting future war.
