DATE PUBLISHED18 August 2012
DATE ACCESSED27 September 2017

This 2012 report assesses a broad range of information on North Korea’s (DPRK) programs to enrich uranium and reprocess plutonium. It seeks to organize available knowledge to assist in developing policies related to North Korea’s acquisition of nuclear weapons. The authors provide estimates for the current amount of fissile materials and numbers of assembled weapons and they offer three scenarios to project the nation’s ability to produce additional weapons. The report also contains a brief history of the North Korean program from the early 1980s to 2011. A final section presents recommendations for the international community with respect to North Korea. The Institute for Science and International Security (ISIS) sponsored the report.
