North Korea’s Lost Generation: The Health and Human Rights of North Korean Children from 1990–2018

U.S. Institute of Peace

Amid concerns about the North Korean nuclear threat and the dashed hopes for a breakthrough in U.S.-North Korea negotiations, the health and human rights of arguably the most vulnerable victims of the ongoing humanitarian crisis—North Korean children—have been overlooked. But a new report by the Committee for Human Rights in North Korea (HRNK) is shining a light on the lives of an entire generation of North Korean youth.

Please join USIP and HRNK for a discussion of the report’s key takeaways and policy recommendations with the report’s author, W. Courtland Robinson, and other leading experts. By examining the past three decades through a public health and human rights lens, this event will serve as a call to the international community to stress the importance of human rights and humanitarian aid in North Korea today. Join the conversation with #NKLostGeneration.
