For US policy, defending human rights in North Korea is not only a moral imperative but also an essential element to reducing the regime’s threats to the rest of the world.

DESCRIPTION

Pyongyang is the world’s worst human rights violator, and yet, the Kim regime’s behavior at home cannot be dismissed as an isolated threat far from America’s shores, as North Korea’s latest atrocities abroad — overseas assassinations, rocket launches, and nuclear threats — demonstrate. For US policy, defending human rights in North Korea is not only a moral imperative but also an essential element to reducing the danger the regime poses to the world.

Please join AEI, the Committee for Human Rights in North Korea, and the Yonsei Center for Human Liberty on March 27 — the third anniversary of the United Nations Human Rights Council’s endorsement of the Commission of Inquiry on Human Rights report on North Korea — for an expert update on the human rights situation in North Korea and a discussion of how Washington and its allies in the region can seek to improve it.
