Awareness Program

NKHR’s Awareness Program expands understanding of the situation inside North Korea, the dangerous journey for North Koreans refugees, and the challenges faced by North Korean resettling in South Korea. We visit universities, high schools, military bases, corporations, and religious groups across South Korea to conduct educational sessions with firsthand testimonies by North Koreans and discussions of current North Korean human rights issues. Each session is tailored to the audience and varies depending on the specialization and requests of the group. We offer similar programs for students from foreign universities, government officials, or diplomats visiting South Korea. NKHR’s Awareness Program is offered in both English and Korean. Our Awareness Program also engages middle and high school students across South Korea through essay contests and fine art competitions. The topics are related to North Korean human rights and have previously included children’s rights and North Korean refugees. NKHR also hosts “Talk Concerts” for South Korean students. These Talk Concerts are informal discussions in the format of a television talk show and feature North Korean resettlers as guest speakers. If you are interested in hosting an education session on North Korean human rights with NKHR, please email nkhr@naver.com
