NK Vision Magazine

Below is a complete list of translations of articles from NKnet’s monthly magazine, NK Vision, which focuses on unification, diplomacy, and security on the Korean Peninsula. Every month the print version carries round-table discussions and expert analysis, book reviews, and interviews with scholars, government officials, North Korean refugees, and activists. As resources are limited, we tend to focus our translation efforts on interviews and human interest stories.

* Campus Talk
* Understanding the Pro-North Faction – I was a Follower of Juche
* Interviews
* Korean Dream
* Pyongyang 25 Hours (장성무의 평양 25時)
* People Working for Unification (통일을 여는 사람들)
