Non-Resident Fellows

Part of our broader mission is to support collaboration within the North Korean Studies community. To achieve this objective, we are committed to maintaining a network of Non-Resident Fellows. It can be used by scholars to identify potential collaborators or for media to identify experts, among other uses. If you are a scholar of North Korea and wish to join as a Non-Resident Fellow, send us request via the Join Us page.
