Thousands of North Korean workers have been exported across the world to raise hard currency for the North Korean Government. Working under conditions that can only be defined as ‘forced labour’, a political elite in Pyongyang is able to import luxury goods, finance an extensive concentration camp and surveillance network, and build a functioning nuclear weapons programme upon the toil of these slaves.
Please join the European Alliance for Human Rights in North Korea (EAHRNK) and the Database Center for North Korean Human Rights (NKDB) for ‘Exporting Enslavement: the Exploitation of North Korean Labourers’ on Friday, July 1st in the lecture theatre at the Institute of Advanced Legal Studies, London at 9.30am for an overview of the issue and what solutions are available to the international community.
Speakers include: Minister Deuk-Hwan Kim, Deputy Head of Mission, Embassy of the Republic of Korea in the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland; Michael Glendinning, Director, EAHRNK; and Teodora Gyupchanova, Researcher, NKDB.
