Abstract of the KEC Special Lecture Series on North Korea 2024 Summer Semester

Every semester, we have been organizing special lectures to feature the diverse research achievements of North Korean scholars. This semester, we have created a unique opportunity to highlight the research accomplishments of young scholars.

Abstract:

Dr Joo-hee Hwang will explain the North Korean economic system and the evolution of economic management from Kim Il Sung to Kim Jong Un. She will explore the new North Korean approach to economic management since Kim Jong Un took power, focusing on past practices and the current legal system, as well as examining changes in management methods through examples of department stores in Pyongyang. Through this analysis, we can gain insights into how North Korea's new socialist method of economic management is strengthening the country's resilience.
