Dear Rutgers Korean Graduate Students Association Members,

The Korea Society invites you and your members to our upcoming program on Engaging North Korea, which starts at 12:30 PM on Thursday, April 14th, at The Korea Society (950 Third Avenue, 8th Fl, NYC).

Stephan Haggard, author of Hard Target: Engaging North Korea, provides an assessment of a North Korea that is undergoing substantial economic and social change under the Kim Jong Un regime, in conversation with Korea Society President Thomas Byrne. 

Stephan Haggard is the Lawrence and Sallye Krause Professor of Korea-Pacific Studies; director, Korea-Pacific Program; and Distinguished Professor of Political Science at the School of Global Policy and Strategy at UC San Diego. He works on the political economy of developing countries, with a particular interest in Asia and the Korean peninsula. His current research focuses on the relationship between inequality, democratization, and authoritarianism in developing countries. Haggard has written extensively on the political economy of North Korea with Marcus Noland, including Famine in North Korea: Markets, Aid, and Reform (2007) and Witness to Transformation: Refugee Insights into North Korea (2011). Haggard and Noland co-author the “North Korea: Witness to Transformation” blog at the Peterson Institute for International Economics. Haggard is the editor of the Journal of East Asian Studies and a member of the Council on Foreign Relations. He earned his PhD from UC Berkeley.

Student tickets are discounted at $5. Arrivals and reception begin at 12:00 PM, and the program starts at 12:30 PM sharp. Please register by emailing us atpolicy@koreasociety.org with your name and Rutgers Korean Graduate Students Association as your affiliation to reserve your seats.

Thank you, and we hope you can join us!

Best regards,

Jesse Hong
