The Evolution of North Korean Human Rights Discourse and Activism: Domestic and Transnational Dimensions
The 2014 United Nations Commission of Inquiry Report into North Korean Human Rights brought about a renewed focus on North Korean human rights. Behind the scenes, a growing network of transnational activists has been responsible for raising the profile of the North Korean human rights issue over a period of two decades. This conference at Catholic University turns the spotlight on these activists in an effort to understand the evolution of North Korean human rights discourse: the contentions, the hurdles and the assumptions underpinning it.
