Chapter Summary

This chapter presents an overview of domestic developments in the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK North Korea). It starts with additional remarks on the programmatic New Year joint editorial. The editorial usually sets the pace and tone for the coming year and is studied, analyzed and discussed widely in North Korea. The chapter then covers the proceedings of the annual plenary session of the Supreme People's Assembly (SPA the DPRK parliament) that usually takes place in April. This is followed by an analysis of major ideological trends, of economic developments, and of other domestic issues including personnel changes. The question of succession and the 'great revolutionary upsurge' are then covered in detail. Finally, the chapter also presents an overview of other developments in ideology, politics and the economy.
