On Thursday, October 13, IWP celebrated the launch of its new China Asia Program with a lecture by Dr. Amanda Won, the new director of the program, on the topic of “The Evolution of North Korean Espionage.”
The China Asia Program is a new initiative which encompasses academic courses, extracurricular lectures, and research about China and Asia, as well as partnerships with academic institutions in the allied countries in the region of Northeast Asia. Through these partnerships, IWP will invite Asian students to participate in IWP’s master’s and doctoral programs and provide IWP students with study-abroad opportunities to those Asian allied countries.
“I look forward to deepening our relationships with our allies in Asia and bringing a deeper focus on this region to the academic community at IWP,” said Dr. Won.
The lecture on October 13 was also part of the Asia Initiative Lecture Series, which Dr. Won launched in 2019.
