To Give or Not to Give: What's Driving the Current Deliberations on DPRK Food Aid?

Our friend, John Park, is moderating this live event in D.C. There is also a webcast if you want to watch from afar.

This event will be webcast live beginning at 2:30pm EST on May 5, 2011 at www.usip.org/webcast.

"In February and March, three U.N. agencies conducted on-the-ground assessments of the food situation in North Korea. After visiting 40 counties in nine of North Korea’s eleven provinces, the World Food Programme, the Food and Agriculture Organization, and UNICEF reported on March 24 that more than 6 million North Koreans – about a quarter of the country’s population – are in urgent need of international food aid. Our panel will examine what factors are driving key countries’ deliberations on whether to provide food aid to the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK)."
