Launched in 2008, the multi-year Critical Oral History Conference (COHC) Series is designed to fill the gaps in the available documentary record and add greater nuance to even well-understood events. The conferences, which involve veteran diplomatic and intelligence officials from the United States, South Korea, China, and the former communist bloc, seek to explore the untapped wealth of non-archival sources to add nuance into the histories of inter-Korean, U.S.-Korean, and DPRK-communist bloc relations.
The NKIDP e-Dossier Series is designed to highlight new and important additions to the NKIDP Digital Archive by pairing key documents with insightful analysis by renowned historians from NKIDP's global network of scholars.
The NKIDP Document Reader Series provides speedy access to samplings of translated documents in the Project's massive collection of declassified materials on the inner-workings and foreign relations of North Korea from the archives of Pyongyang's former communist allies. The NKIDP Document Reader Series is edited by James F. Person and is supported generously by the Korea Foundation and private donations from individuals and corporations.
NKIDP Briefing Books are compilations of documents from U.S., South Korea, North Korean, Chinese, and former communist bloc archives and are assembled for Critical Oral History Conferences.
