As an isolated socialist country, North Korea has had to face a constant challenge of justifying its own vision of economic self-reliance and the dynamics of marketization. The North Korean people’s greater access to foreign media and domestic market information has required different versions of legitimization of mass mobilization. Drawing from a variety of academic disciplines and subject-matter specializations, this year’s North Korea Economic Forum Conference will examine the role that ideology has played in shaping and constraining economic policy and economic life in North Korea, both in the Kim Jong Un era and historically.
10/14, 9 AM EDT - 11:00 AM EDT Day One: Mass Mobilization, Socialist Commerce, and Marketization
10/15, 9 AM EDT - 11:30 AM EDT Day Two: Global Financial Crises, Economic Aid, and Foreign Media
