『Universities in North Korea: History, Reality, and Prospects』examines the past and present of North Korean universities. The author conducted interviews with people who attended universities in North Korea and used the materials to build a database. They also collected information from scholars with experience of academic exchanges and cooperation with North Korea. Presentations of the research findings at the project symposium formed the basis for this book. Divided into three parts—early period, second period, and present—it attempts to identify the distinguishing features of the North Korean university model in a global context.
