ASIAN GEOPOLITICS
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.

This site was originally set up, over two decades ago, 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.
Because of age and other commitments the repository has not been updated since 2021, though many of the links will still be live. The site, when I get round to it, is now mainly used as a link to my writings.
