On July 15, 2010, 38 North held a workshop that gathered together experts from the U.S., South Korea, Europe, China and Japan, to discuss the latest developments regarding North Korea, both internal and external, with the goal of identifying future research priorities. We are pleased to provide excerpts of that dialogue for our readers.
