      NKSC has extracted official documents from the Korean Worker’s Party regarding its aggressive response to foreign media dissemination in North Korea. Read NKSC’s analysis of this document and how information inflow is pushing for changes in the country. 

      “Starting from 2007, NKSC has worked to have an inflow of varying external information into North Korea in order to raise the public’s consciousness on democratic freedom and rights. Specifically, NKSC distributed videos related to freedom, human rights, market economy, democracy, etc. through USBs, DVDs, radios, etc. and delivering them across North Korea. At the onset of this information inflow project, the North Korean government lacked awareness about the far-reaching power of USBs and it was unable to systematically restrict the inflow of new information. However, as the inflow of external information expanded through the increasing supply of USBs in North Korea, the government is seemingly reinforcing control.”
