Primary Sources for Research on North Korea was recorded at the Library of Congress on August 14, 2018.
A panel discussion relating to providing practical skill-sets that can enhance and broaden a career in North Korea analysis and research. As nuclear anxieties and high-stakes diplomacy on the Korean Peninsula overtake the international stage and fill news headlines, it is not surprising that more and more students and young professionals are taking a deep interest in North Korea. However, knowing where to find clear-eyed analysis and primary-source information on North Korea is not simple, and there are few professional development opportunities for those seeking to begin a career working on North Korea-related issues. In order to help fill this gap, the National Committee on North Korea’s Knowing North Korea workshop will provide graduate students and young professionals with a deep-dive overview of critical topics related to North Korea.
