Given North Koreas possession of missiles able to strike Japan, Pyongyang's April 5, 2009, attempt to orbit a satellite using a trajectory that passed over Japanese territory created ambiguity that might have caused Japan to believe it was under attack. Panelists will explore the rights and responsibilities of launching and overflown states in such circumstances. The panel, sponsored by the James Martin Center for Nonproliferation Studies and Georgetown Institute for International Law and Politics, featured Mr. Benjamin Baseley-Walker, Legal and Policy Consultant for the Secure World Foundation, Dr. Bruce MacDonald, Senior Director of the Strategic Posture Review Commission, and Dr. Catherine Lotrionte, Associate Director of the Georgetown University Institute for International Law and Politics.
