On May 18th 2017, the All Party Parliamentary Group on North Korea, the National Human Rights Commission of Korea, and the European Alliance for Human Rights in North Korea will co-host the 2017 International Symposium on North Korean Human Rights at Central Hall Westminster (not the Houses of Parliament). Located directly opposite Westminster Abbey, this historic venue’s opulent round dome can be seen from Parliament Square and Westminster Bridge.
The conference will bring together up to 140 politicians, policymakers, civil society representatives, North Korean exiles, scholars, and members of the public to discuss three themes:
1). The role of information inflows and outflows for North Korea;
2). Children’s rights in North Korea with a focus on the UN human rights protection mechanisms; and
3). Strategies for accountability for crimes against humanity.
Registration is required for all who wish to attend the 2017 symposium. To register, please email events@and include your name and relevant institutional affiliation by 14th May 2017. Attendance is free of charge and lunch will be provided to attendees.
