Lives for Sale: Personal Accounts of Women Fleeing North Korea to China 
Date : November 11, 2011
This report calls the world’s attention to the suffering of North Korean women who have become the victims of trafficking and forced marriages when escaping their country for a new life in China. Not only are the political and economic rights of these women neglected by their own government, but also by the government of their country of asylum. Too often the failure of both North Korea and China to protect them has been overlooked by the international community.   Source: Committee for Human Rights in North Korea
Failure to Protect: The Ongoing Challenge of North Korea 
Date : November 11, 2011
A follow up report to the previous "Failure to Protect". Two years later, the situation remains unchanged. Although there has been some halting progress in the Six-Party Talks over the nuclear issue, discussions about the human rights andhumanitarian challenges within North Korea remain largely an issue of secondary concern. As a result, this new report is commissioned to both elevate the importance of this discussion and to propose an additional set of recommendations to enhance the prospects of achieving some meaningful incremental progress.   Source: DLA Piper and U.S. Committee for North Korean Human Rights 
Failure to Protect: A Call for the UN Security Council to Act in North Korea 
Date : November 11, 2011
The intent of this report is to apply a new doctrine of international law – the responsibility of all states to protect their own citizens from the most egregious of human rights abuses – to the situation in North Korea. Based on a comprehensive review of published information and first-hand interviews, this report concludes that North Korea has violated its responsibility to protect its own citizens from crimes against humanity being committed in the country, that North Korea has refused to accept prior recommendations from UN bodies to remedy the situation, and, therefore, UN Security Council action is warranted.   Source: DLA Piper and U.S. Committee for Human Rights in North Korea

Taken! North Korea’s Criminal Abduction of Citizens in Other Countries 
Date : November 9, 2011
An in-depth and comprehensive history and analysis of North Korea’s state-sponsored policy of abducting citizens of other countries. This criminal enterprise dates back to the earliest days of the regime, and to policy decisions made by Kim II-sung himself. Those abducted came from widely diverse backgrounds, numerous nationalities, both genders, and all ages. During the 1960′s, 93,000 Koreans were lured from Japan and held against their will in North Korea. A decade later, children of North Korean agents were apparently kidnapped in order to control their parents.   Source: The Committee for Human Rights in North Korea

There continues to be a pressing need on the international level for further, more effective action that addresses the ongoing repression of religious freedom and other human rights in North Korea and the persistent problem of North Korean refugees in China.
