Capacity-Building and Low-Key Reintegration of North Korea into International Regimes

May 08, 2013 // 3:30pm5:00pm

Realistically, is there still room for international civilian efforts to open up North Korea? During this event, Dr. Bernhard Seliger will consider the role international capacity-building efforts might play in this respect.

Seliger, resident representative of Hanns Seidel Foundation in Korea and a frequent visitor to North Korea, will first look at the alarming disintegration with the international community which North Korea experienced since the early 1990s. Seliger will then take up for examples (participation in CDM, UCLG, GTI and Ramsar convention), where re-integration is underway and discuss lessons learned from these examples as well as possible future examples in the fields of trade and finance.

James Person, Senior Program Associate for the Wilson Center's History and Public Policy Program and Project Coordinator for the North Korea International Documentation Project, will comment on Seliger's presentation.

This event is co-sponsored by the Wilson Center's North Korea International Documentation Project and the National Committee on North Korea. It will take place in the Wilson Center's 6th floor boardroom from 3:30PM until 5:00PM on Wednesday, May 8, 2013.
