Adding to the foreign policy toolkit : using North Korean defector-run information collection networks to monitor and influence conditions inside North Korea
Thesis (M.A.)--Georgetown University, 2011.; Includes bibliographical references.; Text (Electronic thesis) in PDF format. Can North Korean defector-run information collection systems, located in South Korea and currently using Chinese cellphone networks to collect reports from inside the North, be used to accurately monitor and influence events inside North Korea? By examining the defector-run systems in detail, this paper will illustrate how ad hoc networks of North Korean citizens and defectors harnessed rudimentary cellular technology and, on a miniscule budget, managed to achieve what was once thought nearly impossible: human intelligence collection from inside North Korea.
