RESEARCH

NKSC specializes in research on North Korea issues carried out amongst the defector community, collaborating with experts and international organizations.

We believe that a deeper understanding of the particular conditions in North Korea, especially those impacting human rights, is necessary to dispel stereotypes while informing sound decision-making towards North Korea.

Previous NKSC research projects and seminars include:

2016

  • ‘Illicit Drugs and Human Rights’ (To be published in 2016) – a report investigating the human rights impacts of illicit drug production, distribution and use in North Korea.

2015

  • ‘North Korea – Media and IT Infrastructure’ – a survey of the ICT landscape in North Korea, assessing North Koreans’ use of cell phones, computers, external storage devices and other ICT devices to communicate with each other under the current information controls imposed by the government.
