North Korea Summit on Human Rights
Friday, November 1 - Saturday, November 2, 2013
On Friday night at 7:00 p.m. in the library auditorium we will show the movie 48m. This film was recently released in South Korea and details the stories of various North Koreans who made the dangerous journey escaping the country into China across a river that is approximately 48 meters, hence the name of the movie. The film was directed by two North Korean refugees and is based on the actual testimony of almost 200 defectors.
On Saturday from 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.in the moot courtroom we will host a panel discussion that will highlight what is taking place inside North Korea's labor camps, other human rights abuses in North Korea, the plight of North Korean refugees and the difficulty in formulating a comprehensive foreign policy to protect the refugees.
