Dr. Dlynn Williams, department chair for political science and international affairs, attended the 2016 Center for Security Studies Symposium at Angelo State University in October.
As one of the top experts on Korea in the nation, Williams spoke at the conference in San Angelo, Texas with her peers on the modern challenges and issues concerning North Korea. Topics ranged from power displays of the North Korean military, to how nation states such as Japan, South Korea and the United States can dispel and defend against North Korean aggression through geopolitics and diplomacy.
Williams specializes in international security and east Asian politics and how those relate to differing foreign policies and international relations. She has received multiple awards for her prowess in the classroom and efforts in state-level internationalization.
Because of her passionate interest in the mechanics of international policies and relationships, Williams acted as the director for UNG’s Center for Global Engagement while building the international affairs program to have a greater focus on international security issues and political relations.
