North Korea: Between Threats, War and Media Spectacle
October 3, 2018 - 15:00-17:00
Will North Korea plunge the whole world into nuclear war? Or do the threats from North Korea just reveal its own vulnerability? Does North Korea’s participation in the Olympic Games herald a new era of peace?
At this event researchers from the Department of Cross-Cultural and Regional Studies (ToRS) present how North Korea is perceived in China, India, Japan, Russia and South Korea. We will discuss how and why the image of North Korea varies and question our own perception of one of the most secretive countries of the world.
