NKSC raises public awareness and understanding of North Korean human rights issues.
We work internationally, partnering with schools, universities, NGOs, human rights organizations and others to hold events, seminars and meetings that increase public consciousness of human rights issues in North Korea, focusing particularly on issues around freedom of expression and access to information. In South Korea, our Unification Education programs facilitates visits to schools around the country for young North Korean defectors to share their personal experience in North Korea and views on achieving unification, while our ‘Strategies for Change: A Speaker Series on North Korea’ initiative invites the expatriate community in South Korea to hear from experts on a wide range of North Korea-related topics. Our overseas activities include supporting an annual North Korean human rights film festival in Hong Kong; speaking across the United States at Tufts Fletcher School of Diplomacy, Yale, Columbia, Harvard, Boston University, Georgetown and Johns Hopkins SAIS; as well as hosting numerous seminars.
By promoting deeper understanding of North Korea’s human rights challenges, NKSC seeks to inspire action and compel the international community to see North Korea in terms of possibilities.
