    The Pyongyang University of Science and Technology is a unique institution in North Korea. It was founded by Korean-American Christians and is staffed entirely by foreign professors, who live in the capital and teach the loyal elite of North Korean society.

    Colin McCulloch, who comes from Britain, has taught economics and management at PUST for almost a decade. He will talk about the reasons for PUST’s creation, the ethical conundrums it presents and compromises its staff have to make.

    He is also happy to take questions on daily life in Pyongyang and to speak about the impact that international sanctions have had.

    Please join us for Colin’s insights into living and working in Pyongyang, and the changes he’s seen over the last 10 years.
