Dear colleagues, 

the scarcity of information about North Korea remains one of the most intricate problems of understanding the historical development and current policies of the country. Since the break down of the Soviet Union the opening of archives in Central and Eastern Europe allows interesting insights into North Korean politics from the point of view of its former allies. But also the view on the whole Korean peninsula as represented by these archives is of interest not only for historical researchers, but for understanding current international politics regarding the open Korean question. It is therefore with great pleasure that we can announce a conference devoted to these topics in Hankuk University of Foreign Studies, Seoul, on October 7th, 2005.
