The Korea Now Podcast

Sep 9, 2018

This episode of the Korea Now podcast features an interview that Jed Lea-Henry conducted with Benjamin Katzeff Silberstein. They speak about the changing economic landscape within North Korea, the social changes that are visible on the ground, the challenges this poses for the traditional structures of surveillance and control, and the long-term risk that is being confronted by the Kim regime.

Benjamin Katzeff Silberstein is the co-editor of North Korean Economy Watch (, an associate scholar with the Foreign Policy Research Institute (FPRI), and a PhD candidate in the Department of History at the University of Pennsylvania. His research primarily focuses on surveillance and political control inside North Korea, and the structure of government behind these institutions/apparatuses.
