How can Pyongyang be restrained?

The Democratic People’s Republic of Korea followed up their latest nuclear test with a major rocket launch. Pyongyang claims it was aimed at putting a satellite in orbit but many believe it was really a disguised missile test. Major players in the international community are imposing sanctions and issuing condemnations, but what will it really take to alter DPRK’s actions? Victor Gao from the China National Association of International Studies, Eunjung Lim from the Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies, and Sharon Squassoni from the Center for Strategic and International Studies help us understand the motives behind the launch and the best way forward for the international response.
