Event description

Description

On the 15th anniversary of the signing of the North Korean Human Rights Act into law, HRNK highlights the health and human rights status of the children of North Korea. After 61 interviews conducted in China and South Korea, HRNK's latest report, Lost Generation: The Health and Human Rights of North Korean Children, 1990–2018, applies a public health perspective that treats health as a human right that must be guaranteed to every child in North Korea without discrimination. The report also comprehensively lays out recommendations for the Democratic People's Republic of Korea, the People's Republic of China, the Republic of Korea, the United States, and the international community.

Please join HRNK for introductory remarks by the UN Special Rapporteur on the situation of human rights in the Democratic People's Republic of Korea, Tomás Ojea Quintana and a presentation by the author, W. Courtland Robinson as well as a discussion with Roberta Cohen and Marcus Noland.

Please contact HRNK Director of Programs and Editor Rosa Park at rosapark@hrnk.org with any questions or concerns.
