On October 28 CWIHP Senior Associate Kathryn Weathersby spoke on "Nationalism and Security, the DPRK Perspective," at a conference at George Mason University titled "Peace and Prosperity on the Korean Peninsula: The Impact of Nationalism." Sponsored by the university's Center for Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (CAPEC), the conference marked the opening of a new Center for Korean Studies at George Mason University. Drawing on documents from the DPRK's former allies in the communist world recently uncovered by CWIHP's Korea Initative, Dr. Weathersby examined the historical circumstances that have propelled the North Korean regime to develop its particularly strong form of nationalism.
