If it is true that "there is no such thing as bad publicity," North Korea has been wildly successful in its publicity campaign abroad. Recognizing this blackhole that the topic tends to create, this round table will go beyond North Korea. By using the country as a unifying theme, the discussions will touch on the larger implications, such as what lessons North Korea provide for theories regarding inter-state cooperation, international law, and geopolitics of Northeast Asia. A 'new look' at an 'old issue' captures this aim to use North Korea as a mirror to assess where we are and the general state of the world, rather than what Pyongyang is or is not doing.
