The Repatriation Movement: Lingering Legacies of Japan-DPRK Collusion

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

    Abstract

    When Kim Jong-un succeeded his father, Kim Jong-il, as leader of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK, North Korea) in 2012, his accession to power prompted much debate and speculation in the world’s media. Only a few reports, though, mentioned a particularly fascinating fact about the new North Korean leader: his mother was born and spent her childhood in Japan, and several of Kim Jong-un’s relatives are still living in the island country.
