Exporting Revolutionary Discipline: North Korea and Guyana during the Cold War
Please join the National Committee on North Korea and the East-West Center in Washington for a North Korea in the World webinar on North Korea’s Cold War era involvement in Latin America and the Caribbean, with a particular focus on Guyana, where the socialist regime of Forbes Burnham was heavily influenced by Kim Il Sung’s political and economic model. The discussion will focus on scope and development of this little-known relationship, and ask what lasting impact it may have had.

This North Korea in the World webinar is the fifth in a series examining North Korea’s historical and contemporary relations with countries in the Global South. The North Korea in the World project is a joint initiative of the National Committee on North Korea and the East-West Center in Washington; the NorthKoreaInTheWorld.org website collects and curates information and data on North Korea’s external economic and diplomatic relations.

This seminar will be on-the-record and recorded on both Zoom and YouTube.

Aug 4, 2021 12:00 PM in Eastern Time (US and Canada)
