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 .
The Wilson Center's History and Public Policy Program is pleased to announce that it will be hosting a Modern Korean History Summer Teaching Institute from July 23 through July 26, 2012, for 10 to 15 high school educators.
NKIDP e-Dossier No. 7, “East German Documents on Kim Il Sung’s April 1975 Trip to Beijing,” was featured widely in the South Korean press upon its release, with stories appearing in Joongang Ilbo, Donga Ilbo, and Maeil Business News, among others.
