North Korean State Propaganda – Interview with Jana Hajzlerova

From September 6 to 8, the Central European University of Budapest hosted the Korea Foundation-sponsored conference “Whither The Two Koreas”, where scholars and experts from European and Asian universities exchanged views on a number of Korea-related topics. NK News met with some of the panelists to gather insights on their research and their opinions on North Korea. The first interview in this series is with Jana Hajzlerova, chairperson of the Czech-Korean Society in Prague and external lecturer of Korean Studies at Charles University in Prague. Beside her research activities, Ms. Hajzlerova is currently translating B.R. Myers’ The Cleanest Race for the Czech market. She focuses her research on North Korean media and propaganda to illustrate how the North Korean leadership seeks to reinforce its legitimacy among its people.
