Event description

Description

When knowledge comes knocking, you open the door. Presenting Lecture at Spaces: a series of inspiring 50-minute lectures, presented by university professors, teachers and industry experts, designed to give you a crash course on various world-defining topics. Every 1st Tuesday of the month Spaces Amstel will be the stage for fascinating masterclasses about specific disciplines; from ethics to art history, from American to North Korean studies and media law to robotics.

Round #1 North Korea

We know about a damaged people, the threat of nuclear warfare and human rights violations. We know about Pyongyang, propaganda and indoctrination. We know about military parades, the Korean war and "Great Leaders" named Kim. But do we really know the story? What is happening exactly in the northern part of the Korean Peninsula?

About the speaker

Presenting Remco Breuker, Professor of Korean Studies and Chair of the Korean Studies Department at the University of Leiden. Using his vast knowledge of Korea, he will explain how the Kim dynasty rose to power, and managed to hold the country hostage for so many years. Learn how one of the last oppressive communist regimes manages to stay in power within a global setting where others have collapsed.
