Abstract

When the various uprisings began in North Africa and the Middle East in January 2011, the combination of wishful thinking and a lack of knowledge led some to hope for a similar process to occur in North Korea. Drawing such parallels, however, overlooked the very different domestic situation and the dim chances for a coordinated grass roots movements in the DPRK.

Keywords: Korean Studies, East Asian Studies, Korea (North and/or South), North Korea (politics and society)
