This site is maintained by Tim Beal as a repository of links to articles, mainly on geopolitics, with a focus on Asia, particularly Democratic People's Republic of Korea (North Korea).
It was previously entitled DPRK-North Korea and was hosted by Victoria University of Wellington until my retirement.
