Yongusil 63: Black Panthers and the Sun, Benjamin Young on North Korea and Anti-Colonialist connections

Following its minimal attendance at recent COP meetings of the UNFCCC, North Korea’s concerns and aspirations surrounding climate change are unclear. Benjamin Habib’s new article for Pacific Affairs seeks to determine causality and assess future intention.
This past December, the journal Pacific Affairs asked B.R. Myers, et al., to undertake a review of BC Koh’s classic 1965 paper “North Korea and its Quest for Autonomy.” The Yongusil considers the encounter.
