EU-DPRK Informal Dialogue

Glyn Ford has always believed in informal dialogue as a successful mean to go beyond the misunderstandings and lack of trust that are so typical of the traditional diplomatic and political exchanges, in particular with a country such as the DPRK. Through the years, he has always used his knowledge and unique access to this country to facilitate the engagement of European stakeholders at all levels with their North Korean counterparts. Track2Asia’s most important project so far has been to help the establishment of an informal dialogue between prominent former European politicians and Pyongyang decision-makers, trying to apply the trust-building informal dialogue that proved successful in the case of Northern Ireland.
