North Korea's Quiet Transformation: Women in the Rise of the Informal Market - DP130101700
This is the first major research project to investigate the role played by women in the emergence of a nascent capitalist economy in North Korea. The research outcomes will add significantly to our knowledge of North Korean society and assist NGOs and policy-makers in their efforts to deal with the current humanitarian crisis. In particular it will assist efforts to ensure humanitarian interventions in North Korea are based on gender-sensitive context analysis and to develop planning and monitoring tools for gender impacts of any future interventions. It will also inform strategic policy vis-à-vis the regime.
