Foreign Policy Research Institute A Nation Must Think Before it Acts Thinking About North (and South) Korea

Thinking About North (and South) Korea

  • December 7, 2017

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 missiles that could threaten the U.S. In this discussion we explore North Korean realities with a rising start at FPRI. A former journalist from Switzerland, 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
