KEC Special Lecture Series on North Korea - Exploring Everyday Life in North Korea

North Korea (the DPRK) is one of the countries we hear of frequently in our daily lives, but we do not know much about the lives of the people who live there. North Korean Studies are not only concerned with North Korean politics, ideology, or nuclear weapons, they also strive for a better understanding of life in North Korea. Understanding North Korea includes understanding the lives of its people.
