Viewing the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea from Within - Webinar
January 25, 2024
Robert Duffy – Secretary-General, UPF Canada
For the 7th session of UPF’s search for insights into the realities of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK), its political and social life, and its perceptions of itself and of those neighbors with whom it is engaged or at odds, the two keynote speakers were exceptionally insightful.
Moderated by Dr. Franco Famularo, President of UPF Canada, the meeting began with his recalling that the purpose of the webinar was to emphasize the urgent need for dialogue at a time of crisis when there is very limited understanding of the DPRK in the West and how too often alternative views are brushed off as propaganda.
Mr. Glyn Ford, a veteran of 25 years as a member of the European Parliament and new to our program, is a board member of the Northeast Asia Economic Forum (NEAEF) and the Pacific Century Institute (PCI), as well as one of the European co-organizers of several Korean Global Forum (KGF) events.
Dr. Han S. Park is the University Professor Emeritus of International Affairs and Founding Director of the Center for the Study of Global Issues (GLOBIS) at the University of Georgia, USA.
