South Korea’s Efforts in Solving North Korea’s Human Rights Issue

In June of this year, the United Nations opened a new Human Rights Office in Seoul to monitor the human rights situation in North Korea.

Furthermore, the third committee of the UN General Assembly passed last month a resolution on such issue in an overwhelming vote of 112 to 19.

These two landmark events this year alone have further underlined an undeniable truth: the human rights situation in North Korea is not only in the world’s radar, but also a pressing global agenda.
