Chad O’Carroll over at NKNews asked a group of North Korea watchers a series of questions about developments in the country over the last five years. The group ranges from academics of various stripes–Andrei Lankov, Hazel Smith, Dean Oulette, Remco Breuker, yours truly–to those engaged in the business, NGO and human rights worlds (for example, Simon Cockerell at Koryo tours and Sokeel Park at LiNK).
