Harvard Asia Quarterly, a journal of contemporary Asian affairs affiliated with the Harvard Asia Center, is pleased to invite submissions for its forthcoming issue on North Korea. We welcome submissions on all aspects of contemporary North Korea, but are particularly interested in papers based on original research that address topics that have not been covered extensively elsewhere.
Examples of topics that interest us are:
- connections between North Korea and Korean Diaspora
populations (e.g. educational programs that bring ethnic Korean students from Central Asian countries such as Uzbekistan to Pyongyang to learn Korean; Chosen Soren in Japan)
- the current state of North Korea's foreign relations with Southeast Asian nations
- prospects for the Internet and Information Technology in North Korea
- North Korea's use of managed tourism and easing of foreign media access restrictions as public-relations tools
We also welcome papers on topics of current interest such as: the Six-party talks; North Korea's nuclear capabilities; the international aid and human rights situation; reports from refugees and defectors; prospects for reunification; economic reform; special economic zones and foreign direct investment.
