Chapter Summary

Information about domestic developments in the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) is not easy to obtain. In addition to occasional news available through various official North Korean sources as well as from foreign media, two regular events of a highly programmatic nature stand out, deserving particular attention. The political tone and strategy are set by the New Year joint editorial. The annual plenary session of the People’s Assembly that usually takes place in spring in turn provides some impression of the official view on the status of the national economy. Since the overview section of this yearbook covers events from April 2006 to March 2007, the examination of the parliamentary reports comes first, followed by the major points of the New Year editorial, then a third section covering especially important events, and a fourth section in which other major and minor domestic developments are summarised.

Keywords: Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK); domestic politics; economy; North Korea
