Please join the CSIS Korea Chair for a discussion on the results of a multi-year project dedicated to unpacking the multifaceted layers of the North Korean state and its regional relationships. Members of the Washington Research Consortium on Korea will gather to discuss different methodological approaches to exploring understudied issues related to North Korean society, markets, and ideology.

The Consortium's multidisciplinary research and methodology involve the fields of social history; diplomatic history; strategy and natioal security studies; data collection and analysis; postmodern concepts of statehood and methods of state control; evolving concepts of citizenship and identity; domestic politics; and the impacts of markets, transnational networks, and new sources of information on society. 

This event is made possible through support by the Laboratory Program for Korean Studies through the Ministry of Education of Republic of Korea and Korean Studies Promotion Service of The Academy of Korean Studies (AKS-2016-LAB-2250001).
