The NKIDP Document Reader Series provides speedy access to samplings of translated documents in the Project's massive collection of declassified materials on the inner-workings and foreign relations of North Korea from the archives of Pyongyang's former communist allies.
The NKIDP Document Reader Series is edited by James F. Person and is supported generously by the Korea Foundation and private donations from individuals and corporations.
The release of NKIDP e-Dossier no.11, “Explaining North Korean Migration to China,” was reported widely upon by the South Korean press, with articles appearing in Joongang Daily, Donga Daily, Yonhap News Agency, and Hankook Daily and broadcasts appearing on MBN .
The articles highlight the East German attitudes towards Kim Jong Il's succession in the early 1970s, drawing a parallel between the events some 36 years ago with the current question of Kim Jong Un's succession.
NKIDP e-Dossier no. 13, "North Korean Perspectives on the Overthrow of Syngman Rhee, 1960," is introduced by Jong-dae Shin, Christian F. Ostermann, and James Person and features twenty translated documents cataloging North Korea’s immediate responses to the April 19 Revolution in South Korea and how the DPRK attempted to take advantage of the events which ultimately led to the resignation of President Syngman Rhee.
South Korea's official governmental news organization, Yonhap News Agency, provides coverage of a Korea-related event at the Wilson Center.
