The release of the Report of the Commission of Inquiry on Human Rights in the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea in 2014 represented a significant milestone in human rights documentation and reporting in North Korea.

Five years later, we look at the impact the report has had, what changes have been implemented, and why human rights continue to be among the most important source of contention between North Korea and the international community.

Signe Poulsen is Seoul representative for the United Nations’ Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR).

About the podcast: The “North Korea News Podcast” is a weekly podcast hosted exclusively by NK News, covering all things DPRK: from news to extended interview with leading experts and analysts in the field and insight from our very own journalists.
