Thinking about North (and South) Korea

| Asia Program

About the Event

Arguably the most closed society on earth, North Korea has developed a nuclear weapons program and now appears to be attempting the development of intercontinental ballistic missiles that could threaten the U.S. In this discussion, we will explore North Korean realities with a rising star at FPRI. A former journalist from Sweden, Ben Silberstein is now a Doctoral Candidate in History at the University of Pennsylvania, where he researches the history of surveillance and social control in North Korea. A co-editor of North Korean Economy Watch, he publishes regularly on Korean affairs in IHS Jane’s Intelligence Review and The Diplomat. He was a special advisor to the Swedish Minister for International Development Cooperation.
