Participated in a webinar hosted by Elcano Royal Institute on “North Korea’s Public Health System: contemporary challenges and cooperation opportunities for Europe.” We had very fruitful discussion and I am very much looking forward to the continuation of this project.
On North Korea in Norwegian : VG KRONIKK: ”TØFFERE PRESS OG SANKSJONER MOT NORD-KOREA ER INEFFEKTIVT OG KANSKJE OGSÅ KONTRAPRODUKTIVT”
Interviewed by KIT on whether ther will be a war in North Korea. My part is in chapter 4, but the whole article is quite nice (in Swedish).
Today I spoke at the Swedish Institute of International Affairs on North Korea and East Asian Security – see http://www.ui.se/evenemang/north-korea-and-east-asian-security. I was telling the story about why North Korea survives despite unprecedented international sanctions and what to do about the security situation on the Korean Peninsula.
In my last publication I analyse how North Korea the supply-lines that make North Korea survive and what the potential role of
sanctions are to make North Korea change.
Keeping alive: Understanding North Korea’s supply lines and the potential role of sanctions (UI Paper no. 6, Stockholm: The Swedish Institute of International Affairs, 2014).
