N. Korea’s surprisingly international scientific community – NKNews Podcast Ep.87
Joshua H. Pollack discusses why DPRK researchers can, increasingly, take their work abroad
July 23rd, 2019

Kim Jong Un has placed scientific development and innovation at the forefront of his economic policies, placing new resources in front of North Korean scientists previously unavailable to them for many years. These researchers are collaborating with a number of overseas counterparts, publishing data that offers a peek inside Pyongyang’s scientific priorities.

Researcher Joshua Pollack combed through thousands of published journal articles to reveal the surprisingly international scientific community in North Korea.

On this week’s podcast, he discusses what North Korean scientists are studying, who they are collaborating with, and if their research runs against international sanctions.

Joshua H. Pollack is a senior research associate at the Middlebury Institute of International Studies at Monterey and editor of the Nonproliferation Review.

About the podcast: The “North Korea News Podcast” is a weekly podcast hosted exclusively by NK News, covering all things DPRK: from news to extended interview with leading experts and analysts in the field and insight from our very own journalists.
