"Spotlight: Stephen Bosworth"

Newsletter Article, Belfer Center Newsletter

By James F. Smith, Former Communications Director, Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs and Stephen Bosworth, Former Senior Fellow, Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs

As an American diplomat, Stephen Bosworth stared down dictators (Ferdinand Marcos in the Philippines) and cajoled repressive regimes (North Korea). Then he had a second career as dean of Tufts Universityís Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy. But he wasnít able to retreat to the quiet halls of academia. President Obama appointed him the U.S. special envoy on North Korea, a role he filled from 2009 to 2011 even while he was leading the Fletcher School.

James F. Smith, director of communications for the Belfer Center, interviewed newly appointed senior fellow Stephen Bosworth for this profile.

"Reasons to Talk to North Korea"

Op-Ed, The New York Times

By Stephen Bosworth, Former Senior Fellow, Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs and Robert Gallucci

As officials in charge of American policy toward North Korea during the Clinton and Obama administrations, we met last month in Europe with senior representatives of the North Korean government to discuss relations between our countries. We believe that the current impasse, which only buys time for North Korea to develop its nuclear program, is unstable and that matters will only get worse if not addressed directly. Itís time for the Obama administration to reopen dialogue with Pyongyang.
