In June 2018, only days before the U.S.-North Korea summit, Asia Society Switzerland invited Katharina Zellweger to talk about everyday life in North Korea. She has been visiting the country for decades now and lived there between 2006 and 2011. Katharina Zellweger gave illustrative account of how citizens live in one of the least known areas of the world.
In May 2018 Asia Society Switzerland was touring Switzerland with the guest speaker John Park, a specialist on North Korea and nuclear issues. On our way the Berne, we had the chance to talk with him about how one becomes – and stays – an expert on probably the least known country in the world.
