North Korea's Hidden Revolution

YPFP NY, in collaboration with the Korean Consulate General, invites you to a discussion with Jieun Baek, author of the newly released book, North Korea's Hidden Revolution: How the Information Underground is Transforming a Closed Society. The book describes how outside information and media flows covertly into North Korea; how this phenomenon is creating fault lines in the country’s attempts to seal its informational borders; and how this will spark sustainable changes in the country. Baek, who served as Google Ideas' North Korea expert, aims to shift the public narrative and perception of North Korea from being a hopeless, impenetrable black box to being a nation that comprises experts at the art of survival who are adapting to changes in the flow of information.


Discussion followed by book signing. Books available for purchase. Dinner provided by the Consulate General of Korea.

RSVP: Sign into your YPFP member account and register. Register by Tuesday, December 6 at 5pm. Non-members should RSVP here.


Jieun Baek is a Ph.D. candidate in Public Policy at the University of Oxford. Previously, she was a research fellow at the Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs at Harvard University, and worked at Google, where, among other roles, she served as Google Ideas' North Korea expert. Baek received her bachelor's and master's degrees in Public Policy from Harvard. You can follow her on Facebook, Twitter, or at JieunBaek.com.
