Hacking North Korea Panel | Hart House | Wednesday, 10. January 2018

It ends here.
Our final major event of the year.

Would the Internet Change the Hermit Kingdom?
Our panel seeks to examine the role of information in closed societies with a focus on North Korea, and debate the merits of information dissemination efforts by Western non-profits into North Korea.

We are joined by the following experts:
• Professor Lynette Ong is an Associate Professor of Political Science at the University of Toronto, with a joint appointment at the Asian Institute and the Munk School of Global Affairs, where she currently serves as Director of Munk China Initiatives.

• Steven Denney is a PhD candidate at the University of Toronto. He is a columnist for The Diplomat, an online current affairs magazine, and is the managing editor for SinoNK, a research site for Koreanists and Sinologists working in the digital humanities.

• Christopher Kim serves as the Executive Director of HanVoice, the largest Canadian nonprofit specializing in this area. HanVoice partners with the North Korea Strategy Center in their on-the-ground efforts for information dissemination in North Korea. He is also a manager at Fragomen’s Toronto office, one of North America's largest immigration law firms.

This event is co-hosted with the East Asian Studies Student Union (EASSU), and sponsored by DAVIDsTEA.
