The Committee for Human Rights in North Korea (HRNK) is pleased to invite you to the launch of our new report, “Pyongyang Republic: North Korea’s Capital of Human Rights Denial,” by Robert Collins. The report launch will be co-hosted by the American Enterprise Institute (AEI), from 12:30 to 1:30 pm on Tuesday, February 9, 2016: AEI, Twelfth Floor, 1150 Seventeenth Street, NW, Washington, DC 20036. Lunch will be served.

“Pyongyang Republic” is a comprehensive study of North Korea’s capital city and the overwhelmingly dominant role it plays within North Korea’s political system. Four years after the publication of his seminal HRNK report “Marked for Life: Songbun, North Korea’s Social Classification System,” Collins delivers another groundbreaking report, guaranteed to be instrumental in better comprehending the dynamics of the North Korean regime. Grasping the inner workings of the North Korean regime is key to implementing effective sanctions and other measures aimed to put an end to North Korea’s human rights violations and to counter threats to international peace and security posed by North Korea’s nuclear weapons, long-range ballistic missiles, and military provocations. “Pyongyang Republic” also enhances understanding of the chain of command, mechanisms, and lines of responsibility behind the crimes against humanity and other egregious human rights violations perpetrated by the North Korean regime. According to the UN Commission of Inquiry on Human Rights in the DPRK, such “crimes against humanity are ongoing” in North Korea “because the policies, institutions and patterns of impunity that lie at their heart remain in place.”

Through satellite imagery analysis and witness testimony, HRNK has identified a previously unknown potential kyo-hwa-so long-term prison-labor facility at Sŏnhwa-dong (선화동) P’ihyŏn-gun, P’yŏngan-bukto, North Korea. While this facility appears to be operational and well maintained, further imagery analysis and witness testimony collection will be necessary in order to irrefutably confirm that Sŏnhwa-dong is a kyo-hwa-so.

Human Rights in the Democratic Republic of Korea: The Role of the United Nations" is HRNK's 50th report in our 20-year history. This is even more meaningful as David Hawk's "Hidden Gulag" (2003) was the first report published by HRNK. In his latest report, Hawk details efforts by many UN member states and by the UN’s committees, projects and procedures to promote and protect human rights in the DPRK.  The report highlights North Korea’s shifts in its approach

South Africa’s Apartheid and North Korea’s Songbun: Parallels in Crimes against Humanity by Robert Collins underlines similarities between two systematically, deliberately, and thoroughly discriminatory repressive systems. This project began with expert testimony Collins submitted as part of a joint investigation and documentation project scrutinizing human rights violations committed at North Korea’s short-
