Sixty years ago this week, the 1950-53 Korean War ended in an armistice, with neither side legitimately able to claim outright victory. NKIDP has released a collection of Russian, Chinese, and Polish documents on the armistice negotiations which span the nearly two-year period of talks.
The North Korea International Documentation Project and The Ohio State University are pleased to announce an upcoming conference entitled North Korea’s Cold War.
The article covered the Wilson Center Asia Program event "Knowing the North: Intelligence and Intentions of the DPRK" from September 8, 2010.
Recently released NKIDP e-Dossier No. 5, "New Romanian Evidence on the Blue House Raid and the USS Pueblo Incident," was reported on widely by the South Korean press.
New archival evidence on North Korean history from 1955 through 1984 prepared for the 16-17 June 2010 conference New Documents and New Histories: Twenty-First Century Perspectives on the Korean War.
The Western world knows little about the leadership and political system of North Korea, a nation high on the world's radar. By disseminating newly obtained archival materials and conducting conferences, the Wilson Center's North Korea International Documentation Project works to help fill this informational void.
