Small Arms Survey Podcast #50: North Korea’s Illicit Maritime Activities in Violation of UN Sanctions
In this episode of the Small Arms Survey podcast, we focus on North Korea’s illicit maritime activities in violation of UN sanctions. We discuss what these activities are; how they relate to the UN sanctions regime on North Korea in general as well as the arms embargo in particular; how North Korea tries to circumvent these restrictions; and the tools available to monitor and address the situation.
Giving their expert insight on these topics are Cristina Rotaru, researcher for the Verification Research, Training and Information Centre (VERTIC); and Cameron Trainer, research associate at the James Martin Center for Nonproliferation Studies. This episode forms part of the Small Arms Survey project Strengthening Implementation and Enforcement of the Arms Embargo on North Korea (SAENK), supported by the Kingdom of the Netherlands.
