Report of the Special Rapporteur on the situation of human rights in the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea Summary 

In the  present report,  the mandate  holder takes  stock of  the monitoring and advocacy activities that he conducted in his first year as Special Rapporteur on the situation of human rights in the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea. The Special Rapporteur outlines political and security developments with direct implications for the country’s human rights situation, as well as efforts by the authorities to engage with United Nations human rights mechanisms. In addition, the Special Rapporteur reviews recent trends that were brought to his attention, including through interviews with people who have recently left the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea and other sources from civil society and the United Nations system. On the basis of that information,  the  Special  Rapporteur outlines  proposals to  promote changes  on the ground and  reiterates the  need for  the  Government to  take immediate action to redress grave human rights violations.
