North Korea Economic Forum: "Delving into Kim Jong-un's Ten Years: Economy and Politics"


On February 9th, 2022, the GW Institute for Korean Studies co-hosted the North Korea Economic Forum with Seoul National University's Institute for Peace and Unification.


Event Description:

Ten years have passed since Kim Jong-un became the leader of North Korea in his late twenties. Despite initial expectations for possible instability in North Korea, Kim appears to be a politically competent leader capable of maintaining his power fairly well. However, he is currently facing serious obstacles to realizing his ambitions of making North Korea into a nuclear power state and developing a prosperous economy. This timely webinar invites renowned South Korean and American experts on North Korea’s economy and politics to investigate the current internal situation and to evaluate political economy dynamics in North Korea.
