The 4th International Conference
on North Korean Human Rights & Refugees : Prague, Czec Republic
Invitation to the Conference
The 4th International Conference on North Korean Human Rights & Refugees, co-hosted by the Citizens' Alliance for North Korean Human Rights (NKHR) and the People in Need Foundation (PINF), will be held in Prague on March 2 ~ 4, 2003. NKHR has held the previous three international conferences in Seoul and Tokyo, which provided a grand forum for probing and exposing the plight of North Korean people, whose enjoyment of fundamental human rights have been grossly denied through famine, abuses in prison camps, and forced repatriation from China to North Korea where severe persecution awaits them.
This Conference will provide critical momentum to our continuous struggle to shine the light of human rights on North Korea specifically through incorporating the voices and concerns of former socialist countries in Central and Eastern Europe. This gathering also seeks to contribute to the formulation of effective ways and means to assist North Korean asylum seekers and bring freedom to North Korea.
