Interview with former NKIDP Scholar Kihl-jae Ryoo
South Korea's official governmental news organization, Yonhap News Agency, provides coverage of a Korea-related event at the Wilson Center.
The Western world knows little about the leadership and political system of North Korea, a nation high on the world's radar. By disseminating newly obtained archival materials and conducting conferences, the Wilson Center's North Korea International Documentation Project works to help fill this informational void.
Visiting Scholar Kihl-jae Ryoo, who teaches North Korean studies at a university in South Korea, discusses the evolution of North Korea's political system and why studying its history is so important.
In this Centerpoint column, the Wilson Center's James Person describes the importance and relevance of mining the archives of North Korea's former communist allies.
