NKHR Campaigns to Add Panel of Experts to New North Korean Human Rights Resolution at the UN Human Rights Council

 

 

In January 2016, NKHR sent out letters to the EU states, Japan and the U.S. in strong support of the Special Rapporteur’s initiative to introduce a panel of experts into a new resolution on the human rights situation​ in the DPRK. The resolution will be tabled by the EU and Japan in March at the UN Human Rights Council. In addition to explaining why such a panel of experts is necessary, NKHR also conducted over 15 advocacy meetings with the states. A similar joint letter from various NGOs including NKHR was also sent out mid-February to the members of the Council and the press.
