Cheltenham Literary Festival 2018 – East Meets West (and I talk about the DPRK)

Posted: October 2nd, 2018 | No Comments »

I’ll be on a panel at the Cheltenham Literary Festival this coming Saturday, as part of their East Meets West programme (which includes the likes of Xiaolu Guo, David Peace, Sarah Howe, Min Jin Lee, Ian Buruma, Madeleine Thien etc).

My panel is

The Korean Peninsula – Peace at Last

For decades the Korean peninsula has lived in the shadow of unresolved conflict and an escalating nuclear threat from the hostile and paranoid regime in the North. Following the extraordinary Trump/Kim summit in Singapore, can the international community relax and look forward to peaceful coexistence with a born-again North Korea? Chatham House Director Robin Niblett brings Jieun Baek, author of North Korea’s Hidden Revolution, author and Korea watcher Paul French and Hazel Smith, Professor of International Security and Korean Studies and author of North Korea: Markets and Military Rule, to the table to debate the possible outcomes.
