CWIHP Working Paper #8 by Kathryn Weathersby
North Korea recently hinted that it would be interested in co-hosting the 2018 Olympics with Pyeongchang, South Korea. Though the organizing committee for Pyeongchang rejected the idea as unrealistic, the North’s proposal is not without precedent, as documents obtained by the North Korea International Documentation Project demonstrate.
Documents obtained, translated, and disseminated by the Wilson Center’s North Korea International Documentation Project were quoted from and cited ten times in the United Nations report on human rights in North Korea, released in February 2014.
The Wilson Center's History and Public Policy Program is pleased to announce that it will be hosting a Modern Korean History Summer Teaching Institute from July 23 through July 26, 2012, for 10 to 15 high school educators.
