North Korea: New Friends, Old Foes
On April 30th, 2015, MiCT organised a roundtable discussion about “New friends, old foes: the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea and its foreign policy-making”. It was held in cooperation with the Robert Bosch Stiftung (RBS) and the European Council on Foreign Relations (ECFR) in Berlin.

The event brought together international experts from a range of disciplines, including politics, diplomacy, media and culture, human rights and humanitarian aid, to exchange views on how to deal with North Korea’s foreign policy-making. Presentations focused on the relations between North and South Korea, between the DPRK and China, and – especially – between the DPRK and the European Union.

MiCT first worked with media in the DPRK in 2013.
