This event is hosted by the Korea Economic Institute of America (KEI). The description is as follows:

“North Korea is one of the world’s most opaque countries. While its nuclear weapons and ballistic missile tests draw headlines around the world, significantly less is known about the principles that drive North Korean foreign policy, the social controls the regime uses to dominate the population, and the role of ideology in education. “North Korea in a Nutshell: A Contemporary View” by Dr. Kongdan “Katy” Oh and Dr. Ralph Hassig attempts to shed light on these and other aspects of the North Korean state and society.

KEI will host a discussion with Dr. Kongdan “Katy” Oh on North Korea’s military, foreign policy, economy, and society. Dr. Oh is an independent analyst with more than thirty years of experience working on issues related to North Korea with the RAND Corporation and the Institute for Defense Analyses.”
