[ONLINE CONFERENCE] North Korea International: (Re)Evaluating, (Re)Viewing, and (Re)Connecting in a COVID World with IFES and FNF

[Presentation running time: 15 mins, 33:00-48:00]

Please join me and my fellow senior colleagues Leif-Eric Easley (Ewha Womans University) Tereza Novotna (Freie Universität Berlin) as panelists for a timely reassessment of sanctions on North Korea, with a focus on the art of evasions on US (Treasury) and UN sanctions. The sessions will be live-streamed from Seoul, South Korea. Anyone interested in North Korea would benefit from the presentations.

My presentation will be focusing on the cyber currency domain and U.S. banking routes used for money laundering, and forecasts on digital sovereign currency to be launched this year by China. The conference is held live from the Institute for Far Eastern Studies (IFES) in partnership with FNF Korea (Friedrich Naumann Stiftung für die Freiheit) of the Free Democratic Party (Freie Demokratische Partei) of the Federal Republic of Germany, which celebrates its 30th anniversary of unification this year.

While I plan on working with FNF on publishing my contribution in a short report, the contents of the presentation will be developed into an academic book chapter entitled, ‘The Art of Evasion: Failed Détente in the Inter-Korean Dialogue and U.S.-DPRK Rapprochement since 2018,’ in an edited book volume by Andrea Charron and Clara Portela, called ‘Multilateral Sanctions Dissected: Lessons Learned from Margaret Doxey,’ to be published by McGill-Queens University Press. The all-female author lineup for this book project will benefit from a workshop to be held in Canada in 2021 if we get the COVID-19 situations under control by then.
