North Korea – Myth and Reality

Welcome to a seminar that aims to separate myths from facts about a country central to world politics and yet little understood.

Are economic sanctions working?
How do North Koreans view their own country?
How will recent economic change in North Korea impact the country’s political and social future?


Loretta Napoleoni, journalist and political analyst

Ulv Hanssen, Research Fellow at the European Institute of Japanese Studies and Associate Research Fellow at UI

The seminar will be moderated by Björn Jerdén, Head of UI’s Asia Programme

Seminar fee: UI members and students free, non-members 100 SEK.
