An FPRI Event: Thinking about North (and South) Korea

December 5, 2017 @ 6:15 pm - 7:30 pm

This event is part of the FPRI* ongoing series Geopolitics with Granieri

Geopolitics with Granieri features a conversation – some might say an interrogation – with guest scholars on subjects in the news. Moderated by FPRI’s Ron Granieri, each session draws upon FPRI’s vast network of scholars and outside experts to elicit a broader understanding of the geographical, political, and historical context of current events. This uniquely interactive program, produced in front of a live audience, offers real substance and emphasizes active audience participation from both the studio and the live YouTube audience.     *Foreign Policy Research Institute

Benjamin Katzeff Silberstein

Arguably the most closed society on earth, North Korea has developed a nuclear weapons program and now appears to be attempting the development of intercontinental ballistic missiles that could threaten the U.S. In this discussion, we will explore North Korean realities with a rising star at FPRI. A former journalist from Switzerland, Ben Silberstein is now a Doctoral Candidate in History at the University of Pennsylvania, where he researches the history of surveillance and social control in North Korea.

Registration begins at 6:15 pm, with the program to follow from 6:30 – 7:30 pm.

Reservations are required. RSVP to Rachel Hemler:

Dinner immediately following for Bronze Partners of FPRI.
