Korea-related Experience

Miranda interest in North Korea began from her very first visit there in 1999. She has since returned twice. In 2003 to chaperone her baby sister on a visit. And 2006, guiding a group of Canadians on a visit to Pyongyang and Kaesong.
Scenarios As Communications Coordinator for the Nautilus Institute, Miranda learned the art of working with scenarios as a tool for strategic planning. Recently, she co-designed, facilitated and coordinated a scenarios workshop on the Future of Canada-DPRK Relations. The report, co-authored with Erich is available here.
Event Coordination Miranda assisted the coordinator of the first International Women’s Conference on Peace in Northeast Asia which took place in Ontario in September 2001. She moved on to coordinate a follow-up workshop hosted by now-retired Senator Lois Wilson, involving young Canadian women in 2004.
Writing /Editing Miranda joined the CanKor team in its infancy scouring the internet for news on North Korea (“there was so little back then”, she muses). Her role evolved parallel to available technology. Soon, she was training Humber College interns to fill her shoes, while she worked with David Seguin on the first CanKor website. As an unabashed geek, Miranda continues to grow into emerging technologies, and invites you to subscribe to the CanKor Report and if you tweet, follow @CanKorTweets.
