North Korea in the World website banner logo

North Korea in the World is a joint pilot project of the East-West Center and the National Committee on North Korea. It was created to provide researchers, policymakers, journalists, and the general public with easily-accessible information on the external diplomatic and economic relations of North Korea (formally known as the Democratic People's Republic of Korea, or DPRK). The project aims to collect data from across a wide variety of sources, and to provide context to help its users better understand this data.It also takes a close look at the relationship between North and South Korea, providing data and analysis on topics ranging from inter-Korean trade relations, to the resettlement of North Korean refugees in South Korea, to the frequency and subjects of inter-Korean dialogue.
