Program North Korea

We promote dialogue and cooperation between the two Koreas by bringing in the very unique German experience of national unification and European integration. Since 2003 we support the economic modernization and development in the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea. Our programs are aimed at transferring knowledge on the functioning of market economy, strategies of economic modernization, city management and environmental planning. We organize workshops in Pyongyang with German experts and also bring North Korean experts for study tours to Germany.

In South Korea, we co-organize an annual international conference on North Korea with the Institute for Far Eastern Studies (IFES) of Kyungnam University, which attracts North Korea experts as well as the interested general public.

With our political dialogue we strive for peace and stability on the Korean peninsula.
