In the past three years, the momentum to bring human dignity to the citizens of North Korea has lost ground. In 2018, the UN Security Council failed to renew a debate on North Korean human rights abuses in its chambers for the first time since the release of the 2012 Report of the Commission of Inquiry (COI) on Human Rights in North Korea. To galvanize momentum on human rights issues and to promote discussions of concrete and actionable policy recommendations with a focus on creating change, current and former government officials, scholars, and experts will address developments after the UN COI, explore the nexus of human rights and denuclearization, hear the stories of North Korean refugees, and present new research in the area of human rights.

This event will be co-hosted with CSIS and the George W. Bush Institute.

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 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-
