ABSTRACT

This study sets out to examine the China-DPRK research institutions in China and their research outcomes. This study finds that China, as the “No. 1 ally” of North Korea, has no special research institutions on China-DPRK relations. Most studies in this field are focused on the comments of popular news topics. In addition, most researchers share the same education background―most of them majored in International Politics. They all conducted their researches under the framework of relations among great powers. As a result, the researches are not systematic enough. This study also finds out that only several papers talked about the status quo of China-DPRK research institutions in China. Those papers focused on the national research institutions located in Beijing and Shanghai, and neglected the potential of Yanbian University, which boasts ‘global and local’ advantages because of its location and languages. This study suggests that in the future, researchers should conduct overall research on China-DPRK relations in order to avoid getting one-sided views. This study is of pragmatic and academic values and hopefully it will usher in better and in-depth academic exchanges between China’s DPRK research institutions and ROK’s counterparts.
