North Korea is the most oppressive regime in the world, in a state of seemingly endless humanitarian crisis. Yet, while the struggles of North Koreans have reached the attention of global, mainstream media, denuclearization remains the top priority of many governments and institutions. The threat of aggression from the regime is indeed prevalent, but international organizations and governments must jointly pursue national security interests without compromising or neglecting humanitarian aid with a human rights up front approach.
HRNK staff members and interns wish to dedicate this program to our colleagues Katty Chi and Miran Song.
