Dear Friend:

We are pleased to share with you that Andrei Lankov, ICAS Fellow (www.icasinc.org/roster.html), will address The Korean Peninsula Issues at the Virtual ICAS Summer Symposium Libertas on June 25, 2021.

Andrei was born in Leningrad (now St Petersburg). He completed his undergraduate and graduate studies at Leningrad State University (PhD in 1989). In 1996-2004 Andrei taught Korean history at the Australian National University, and since 2004 he teaches at Kookmin University, Seoul (currently a professor at the College of Social Studies), and also director of Korearisk.com group.

Andrei's major research interest is North Korean history and society. His major English language publications on North Korea include: From Stalin to Kim Il Sung: The Formation of North Korea, 1945-1960 (Rutgers University Press, 2003); Crisis in North Korea: The Failure of De-Stalinization, 1956 (University of Hawaii Press, 2004); North of the DMZ: Essays on Daily Life in North Korea (McFarland and Company, 2007); The Real North Korea (Oxford University Press, 2013).

He contributed to Wall Street Journal, New York Times, Financial Times, Newsweek, and published a number of academic articles such as the Foreign Affairs and the Foreign Policy. In 2017 the Foreign Policy magazine included him into the list of 'Global Thinkers'.

Andrei also writes extensively in Korean and Russian.

Thank you.
