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).
