• It is my distinct honor and privilege to present the launch of EAI’s web journal Global NK: Zoom & Connect. Global NK is a newly improved version of the English-based website Global North Korea, a comprehensive archival website collecting and evaluating publications on North Korea related issues. which has been operating under EAI since 2018
    EAI has strived to establish an “intellectual hub” for developing strategies and policies towards North Korean and Peninsula affairs. To do so, EAI is strengthening the research on North Korea and promote a more balanced perspective on the subject while archiving information on North Korea and the Korean Peninsula based on four perspectives: sanctions, engagement, internal transformation, and deterrence.

    Global NK: Zoom & Connect seeks to play a pivotal role in systematically delivering the voices of both Korean and international experts in the process of understanding and establishing a systematic strategy for North Korea and the Korean Peninsula on a global scale. This web journal is divided into 4 sections: expert commentaries, expert interviews, research notes, and special reports. Through these areas, Global NK: Zoom & Connect seeks to convene the voices of domestic researchers, act as a bridge for the knowledge between domestic and foreign researchers, and ultimately contribute to designing a blueprint for peace in the Korean Peninsula.
    Thank you.

  • About This Website

    The North Korean nuclear problem and the future of the Korean Peninsula has become one of the most significant issues deciding the security and stability of the Korean people and the East Asian region. Differences of strategies and debates have contributed to the dynamic search for a solution to the North Korean nuclear problem and the right course for North Korea’s future. Both incentives and disincentives will help the North Korean leadership choose the right path for the North Korean people and the whole Peninsula.

    The proper combination of essential alternatives such as sanctions, deterrence, engagement and assisting North Korea in undergoing internal transformation will be important. International society shares the wish for North Korea to become a normal state with a proper global status. This website aims to provide articles and video on North Korea produced by governments, policy institutes, media, and think tanks to track the evolution of these strategies and their impact. This website was created and is maintained by the East Asia Institute.
