InterMedia Releases Landmark Report on North Korea


InterMedia released today the new report A Quiet Opening: North Koreans in a Changing Media Environment, showing how North Koreans’ growing access to a range of media and communication technologies is undermining the state’s monopoly on what its citizens see, hear, know and think.

Recent developments in North Korea give no indication that leader Kim Jong Un plans to loosen official state control of media and information. But the reach of unsanctioned foreign media is expanding nonetheless and providing many North Koreans with alternative news and views.

The report is based on research among refugees, travelers and defectors from North Korea.
