Human Rights in N. Korea

Language: the speech and Q&A will be in English.


Even in late 2016, North Korea remains one of the darkest corners of the earth, ruled by a regime dedicated to letting little light in or out. As a secretive one-party state with democratically unaccountable institutions, it is reasonable to assume that there are many shocking human rights violations in the country. Assuming is one thing, but verification and documentation is another. That is the formidable task of our guest to the FCCJ. He will report his findings and recommendations during his ten-day mission to Northeast Asia, including Japan and South Korea.

Argentine lawyer Tomas Ojea Quintana is the new UN Special Rapporteur on North Korean Human Rights. Ojea Quintana is a lawyer with more than twenty years of experience in human rights issues, who worked for the Inter-American Commission of Human Rights and represented the Argentinian NGO 'Abuelas de Plaza de Mayo' in cases concerning child abduction during that country's military regime. He also served as the UN Special Rapporteur on the situation of human rights in Myanmar from 2008 to 2014.
