DPRK Event Calendar
Monday, September 29: Tailored Engagement: Making Inter-Korean Relations Effective and Sustainable (Washington, DC)
The Center for East Asia Policy Studies at Brookings will host a discussion by Gi-Wook Shin and David Straub of Stanford University’s Shorenstein Asia-Pacific Research Center (APARC) as they unveil their study on a new South Korean approach to engage North Korea. The authors will articulate a path for implementing “tailored engagement,” which requires increasing South Korea’s domestic consensus on North Korea and reorganizing South Korea’s official apparatus for dealing with Pyongyang. They also lay out basic principles that must be followed to ensure the policy’s sustainability in South Korea and with North Korea. John Merrill, former chief of the Northeast Asia Division of Bureau of Intelligence and Research at the U.S. Department of State, will comment on the presentations, and Katharine Moon, senior fellow and SK-Korea Foundation chair in Korea studies at Brookings, will moderate the discussion.

Friday, October 31: Countering Sanctions: The Unequal Geographic Impact of Economic Sanctions in North Korea (Stanford, CA)
Recently, economic sanctions have not been effective in changing the behavior of a sanctioned country. Yong Suk Lee will speak at Stanford to examine how an autocratic regime domestically counters the impact of economic sanctions, specifically, how the easing and tightening of sanctions impact the urban areas relative to the hinterlands in North Korea. Using the satellite luminosity data, he argues sanctions that fail to change the autocrat's behavior increase inequality at a cost to the already marginalized hinterlands. Economist Yong Suk Lee has been appointed the SK Center Fellow at Stanford's Freeman Spogli Institute for International Studies (FSI), effective Sept. 1, 2014. Lee will join the Korea Program at the Walter H. Shorenstein Asia-Pacific Research Center (APARC).
