North Korea New Approaches, 8th International Conference on North Korean Human
Rights and Refugees is designed with an aim of building a platform for discussion for
all the parties involved in the issue:
 
- to listen and to learn from different approaches,
- to exchange experiences around the world in order to construce well-balanced policies
and strategies to deal with the DPRK, whether they are conducted on
governmental or non-governmental level.
 
 
  Organizers: Chatham House - The Royal Institute of International Affairs, Citizens' Alliance
  for North Korean Human Rights, Rafto Foundation for Human Rights and Korea University
  GSIS would like to warmly invite you to take part in transforming ideas into action by
  participating in our Conference.
 
  We view our meeting as a medium-sized platform where experts, politicians, NGO activists,
  aid donors, businessmen and concerned government representatives would exchange
  information and opinion on the most challenging topics regarding North Korea's human rights
  issues placed in a broad perspective.
 
   The partners recognize the need to encourage innovative dialogue by engaging professionals
   and organizations from different fields of science, media, trade, the arts and sports. Also,
   bringing in actors who are not primarily engaged in human rights issues is certainly
   meaningful in building bridges to find comprehensive and sustainable solutions to
   the challenges ahead.
 
    We aime to focus on the following issues:
 
    1. Changing Perceptions in North Korea
 
    Understanding North Korea and its internal situation is a starting point for further discussion
    on how to overcome problems with communication on more complicated issues that require
    opening a channel for a dialogue.
 
   2. North Korea's Path to Development
 
    Development projects, investments and humanitarian assistance all have impact on
    socio-economic rights and are important aspects of understanding the process of transition
    in North Korea. Such discussion opens the window for ideas on comprehensive
    development strategies that would benefit all strata of the society.
 
   3. Helsinki Process in Northeast Asia?
 
    A security paradigm shift on the Korean Peninsula could bring a new opening of
    innovative channels for projects on different levels. There is a need for a
    permanent regional body or a parallel track that would include discussion within
    three pillars: Security, Sustainable Development and Human Rights.
