-Greg Scarlatoiu, Executive Director of the Committee for Human Rights in North Korea
Mark Tokola, Moderator, Vice President of the Korea Economic Institute of America

The State Department’s 2019 Human Rights Report continues to be as tough in its language on North Korean human rights violations as were its 2018 and 2017 reports. Along with the February 25, 2020 report of the United Nations Human Rights Council and the Korea Institute for National Unification’s 2019 White Paper on Human Rights in North Korea, there is ample recent documentation showing the continuing abysmal state of human rights in Kim Jong-un’s North Korea.

This event will be live-streamed on Zoom* with an interactive Q&A session, during which you will be able to ask a question of the speakers by using the Zoom Q&A function.
