Supported by the Korean Ministry of Unification, the Wilson Center will host "Regional Dynamics and Inter-Korean Relations, Past and Present" on November 27, 2012, an event which seeks to bring a broader historical perspective to current issues affecting inter-Korean relations by conveying the importance of deep historical continuities on the Korean Peninsula.
CWIHP is currently seeking paper proposals and participants for a new collaborative project on the cultural, social and political significance of sport between the end of World War II and the fall of Communism
Documents on the inter-Korean dialogue in the 1970s released by NKIDP continue to be cited by Korean scholars, who are now questioning North Korea’s recent attacks on the Yushin constitution in light of the fact that there were no criticisms at the time Yushin was declared in 1972.
A recent article in the Dong-a Ilbo cites evidence obtained and disseminated by NKIDP to explain why North Korea did not criticize South Korea following the declaration of the Yushin Constitution in October 1972.
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 .
